In partnership with University of San Francisco 


Experimental Economics. The People That Make Markets Effective Also Show Trust and Trustworthiness 

Join us for an evening of enrichment, enjoyment, and socializing with Bay Area professionals and academics. Dr. Vernon Smith will be discussing his groundbreaking work in Experimental Economics and his first experiments that unexpectedly supported Adam Smith's theory of markets. Dr. Smith will also illuminate the behavior in trust games where people are more considerate of the welfare of others than predicted by rational game theory. Finally, he will share some other gems from his life in the Q&A with University of San Francisco's Professor Ludwig Chincarini.

This is a CFA Society San Francisco member-only event.
