FGV EPGE welcomes 2007 Nobel Prize in Economics, Professor Eric Maskin

On 13 March, FGV EPGE welcomed Nobel Prize Eric Maskin for a series of events related with the Nobel Prize Dialogue and Nobel Inspiration Initiative, “a global program that brings Nobel Laureates to universities and research centers to inspire and engage young scientists, the scientific community and the public.”  EPGE students and professors and special guests invited by Fundação Getulio Vargas attended the events.

In the morning, beginning at 10 o’clock, the seminar given by Maskin was directed to the students  of the Undergraduate and Graduate Programs in Economics of FGV and other institutions, besides other guests, where researches on mechanisms designs – for which Maskin was laureate with Leonid Hurwicz and Roger Myerson – were presented. The theory formulated by the three economists allows for a better understanding of the markets according to the different instances in which they work well and those in which they don’t.

In the afternoon, Eric Masking participated in a round-table with a group of 21 students of the Undergraduate and Graduate Programs of EPGE only.  At the occasion, our students had the opportunity to learn more about Professor Maskin, his academic career and research areas.
