  Add to Calendar 2019-06-13 16:30 2019-06-13 18:00 Europe/Paris Max Weber Fellows June Conference Keynote Lecture - Prof. Per Krusell (Stockholm University): The Role of Economics Analysis in Combatting Climate Change

Per Krusell received his PhD in economics at the University of Minnesota in 1992.
He is currently Professor of Economics at Stockholm University and Centennial Professor at London School of Economics. He was a professor of economics at Princeton University 2004-2009 and also had positions at University of Rochester, University of Pennsylvania, and Northwestern University.

Professor Krusell’s research lies within macroeconomics, broadly speaking. He has studied the role of technological change for economic growth and labor markets and analyzed the causes of inequality among consumers in their income and wealth. In collaboration with Anthony A. Smith, Jr. he has developed one of the most broadly used tools for understanding the interaction between macroeconomic fluctuations and inequality. He is currently involved in a long-term research project on global climate change in collaboration with natural scientists.

Professor Krusell has received numerous awards, fellowships, and grants, including a series of NSF grants, the 2007 Söderberg Prize, an Advanced ERC grant, and a Wallenberg Scholar award. He is a member of the Royal Swedish Academy of Sciences and served on its Economics Nobel Prize Committee for 11 years, including three years as a chairman. He is a fellow of the Econometric Society, and a member of other international research organizations, e.g., the NBER (USA) and the CEPR (EU). He has also held editorial positions at a number of leading research journals and serves on the boards of several research-oriented organizations.

The Lecture will be introduced by Alessandro Spiganti (MW Fellow, ECO).
