The Consequences of Uncertainty

A talk by Lars Peter Hansen, 2013 Nobel Laureate

May 27, 2015

6:45pm 8:30pm

The University of Chicago Center in Paris
Speakers

How do investors, consumers, and enterprises cope with uncertainty about the economic future? How do researchers and policy makers incorporate this uncertainty into their models? How do risks and uncertainty in the financial sector influence the economy as a whole? Hear institute director and co-chair Lars Peter Hansen explore these questions at the University of Chicago Center in Paris on May 27, 2015.

Hansen won the Sveriges Riksbank Prize in Economic Sciences in Memory of Alfred Nobel for his work, which shapes our understanding of asset prices. He continues to study the impact of uncertainty, particularly in the linkages between financial markets and the macroeconomy.

He will share his views on how better models to measure risk and uncertainty are essential for financial market oversight, fiscal policy, and the global economy.
