PER Distinguished Lecture: Vincent P. Crawford, “Efficient Mechanisms for Level-k Bilateral Trading” Friday, April 20, 2018 10:30am-12:00pm Deutsches Haus, Columbia University Press here to RSVP for planning purposes. Professor Vincent P. Crawford revisits Roger Myerson and Mark Satterthwaite’s (1983; “MS”) analysis of mechanism design for bilateral trading, replacing equilibrium with a non-equilibrium “level-k” model that predicts initial responses to games, and focusing on direct mechanisms.

PER Distinguished Lecture: Harald Uhlig

Friday, April 19, 2019, 10:30 am - 12:00 pm
Presidential Ballroom, Faculty House, 64 Morningside Drive

Professor Harald Uhlig will consider the possibility of a future world where a privately issued currency such as bitcoin is used as a perfect substitute for goods purchases alongside an official currency such as the U.S. dollar, issued by a central bank who seeks to achieve a particular dollar inflation target. This framework will be used to derive implications for pricing, extending classic results by Kareken-Wallace, conditions that imply absence of speculation and consequences for dollar monetary policy.
