On Friday, March 2, Dr. Vernon Smith, the 2002 winner of the Nobel Prize for his work in experimental economics, visited the Culverhouse College of Commerce for a Lowder Lecture Series talk. His talk explored how commonly held and false beliefs about economic behavior and the market have changed over time. He was invited by Culverhouse economics professor Cary Deck, who has worked with Dr. Smith at various points throughout his career.
As part of his visit, Dr. Smith sat down with Culverhouse for a brief Q&A about starting and running an experimental economics research facility. See that video above or view it here.
