What: Nobel Prize Winning Economist Vernon Smith to Present at the University

Who: Culverhouse College of Commerce

When: Friday, March 2, 10-11 a.m.

Where: Alston Hall Parlor

Why: Economist Vernon Smith, winner of the 2002 Nobel Memorial Prize in Economic Sciences, will be coming to present a discussion on the misconceptions surrounding economic behavior and how the economy and market change over time.

Zach Thomas, director of marketing and communications for the Culverhouse College of Commerce, said hearing Smith speak is worth the time for more than people in the field of economics.

“Economic theories as they apply to decision making are of relevance to a huge number of other fields," Thomas said. "That alone would make this talk worth attending. Then, the opportunity to share space with a Nobel Prize winner further cements this as a tremendous opportunity worth taking.”
