Nobel Laureates Oliver Hart and Bengt Holmström visited SSE
This year’s Nobel Laureates in Economics Sciences, Oliver Hart and Bengt Holmström visited SSE on Monday, December 12.
Together with Professor Tore Ellingsen, the laureates discussed how they originally started thinking about contract theory. While this work is very technical, both laureates stressed the importance of considering human factors and feelings. The laureates also described frustrations and important eureka moments that eventually led them to their discoveries.
SSE is grateful for the opportunity to host the Economics Nobel Laureate every year, and we are proud that currently one of our very own professors, Per Strömberg is the Chairman of the Committee for Sveriges Riksbank Prize in Economic Sciences in Memory of Alfred Nobel.
