Share |

Douglass North, a 1993 Nobel laureate in economics, will discuss “Beliefs and Institutions that Underlie Present Day Economic Decision Making” at the Bradley Distinguished Lecture Series on Thursday, October 20th, 12 noon – 1:30 p.m., at the Hilton Milwaukee City Center.

North will examine how economic decisions are made through the lens of the complex beliefs and institutions that set the framework for economic systems.

North is the Spencer T. Olin Professor in Arts and Sciences at Washington University in St. Louis and the Bartlett Burnap Senior Fellow at the Hoover Institution.  His career as an economist has focused on variations of one question:  Why do some countries become rich, whole others remain poor?  North is an elected member of the American Academy of Arts and Sciences and a Fellow of the British Academy.

The Bradley Series is sponsored by UWM’s Lubar School of Business and the Lynde and Harry Bradley Foundation.
