Brown Bag Series: The Henry George Theorem with Uncertainty and Lump Infrastructure

May 13, 2013 @ 12:00 pm - 1:00 pm



The Urbanization Project at NYU Stern presents the “Brown Bag Discussion Series.”

This week’s discussion is titled The Henry George Theorem with Uncertainty and Lump Infrastructure, featuring Paul Romer, of the NYU Stern Economics and Urbanization Project.

Paul Romer is Professor of Economics at New York University’s Stern School of Business and Director of its Urbanization Project. The Urbanization Project addresses a truly historic challenge and opportunity: welcoming an additional 3 – 5 billion people to urban life in less than a century. The Project’s first initiative helps existing cities plan for expansion. Its second initiative fosters the creation of entirely new cities because history shows that a new city offers a uniquely important opportunity to implement systemic social reform and speed up progress.

Prior to joining Stern, Romer taught at Stanford’s Graduate School of Business, where he took an entrepreneurial detour to start Aplia, an education technology company dedicated to increasing student effort and engagement. Romer is a Research Associate at the National Bureau of Economic Research and a Fellow of the American Academy of Arts and Sciences. In 2002, he received the Recktenwald Prize for his work on the role of ideas in sustaining economic growth.

All Brown Bag Discussions are held at NYU’s Kaufman Management Center in room 7-191.
