On October 7, University of Chicago professors Michael Greenstone and Dipesh Chakrabarty came together for an engaging, virtual discussion on Economy and Ecology. They had a thought-provoking conversation that touched on the role of corporations and governments in climate change, the trade-offs of policy decisions, and the connection between ecological issues and human health and longevity.

This virtual event was the newest in the series A Meeting of the Minds: Business and the Human, sponsored by Booth and the Stevanovich Institute on the Formation of Knowledge. The series brings together faculty members from Booth, the humanities, and related fields, such as politics, law, and psychology. The two professors brought their expertise to the connected issues of economy and ecology, and crafted new and intriguing arguments within the conversation of climate change.

The next Meeting of the Minds event will take place on February 24, 2021, on the topic Economics: East and West, featuring Chicago Booth Professor Austan Goolsbee and University of Chicago Professor Dali Yang.
