Poster for the 2018 Nobel lecture
Theta of PA, the Temple University chapter of Omicron Delta Epsilon, inaugurated an annual lecture series about the Bank of Sweden Prize in Economic Sciences in Honor of Alfred Nobel, co-sponsored by the Temple University Phi Beta Kappa chapter and the Temple Economics Society. Each lecture in the series will be delivered in October, shortly after the prize has been announced, by a Temple Economics Department faculty member with expertise in the area of that year’s prize.
The 2018 lecture was delivered on 19 October 2018 by Professor Charles E. Swanson, who gave an energetic, informative, and incisive talk about the winners, William D. Nordhaus and Paul M. Romer, as well as their most prize-worthy contributions. The talk was very well attended (there were about 20 standees and almost every seat was taken in the 100-seat auditorium) and the question-and-answer session after the talk was lively.
