Dr. Joshua Angrist, Ford Professor of Economics at MIT and director of MIT’s School Effectiveness and Inequality Initiative, will deliver the annual Marburg Lecture on Thursday, Dec. 7, at 4 p.m. in the Weasler Auditorium.
Angrist is an expert in the economics of education and school reform, and econometric methods for program and policy evaluation. His lecture will focus on how empirical economics has evolved to answer important policy questions, how this evolution has increased the impact of economics on other disciplines, and how undergraduate economic instruction should change accordingly.
