Event Details

The 2013 Nobel Laureate in Economics, Gene Fama, will share his thoughts on the markets and finance in a Question and Answer format.  

Fama is famous for many contributions/papers including the often cited: "Efficient Capital Markets: a Review of Theory and Empirical Work".

According to Professor John Cochrane: "Gene has had a personal influence in the field that reaches beyond his published work.  Most of the founding generation of finance researchers got their Ph.D's under Gene Fama, and his leadership has contributed centrally to making the Booth School at the University of Chicago such a superb institution for developing ideas about financial economics."
