Kenneth Arrow, a member of the CISAC Executive Committee and one of the most respected and admired living economists in the world, will be in conversation with John Shoven, the Charles Schwab Professor in Economics, Director of the Stanford Institute for Economic Policy Research, and Senior Fellow (by courtesy) at the Hoover Institution. A pioneer in the application of mathematics to the science of economics, his theory of economic equilibrium and his welfare theory provide the foundations for much of the practice of economics today. His work has earned him both a Nobel Prize in Economics (1972) and a National Medal of Science (2004).
