Climate Change: The Economics of and Prospects for a Global Deal

From Nicholas Stern's market perspective, climate change constitutes an "externality" that, like traffic grid lock in a city center, arises when some people's actions affect the welfare of others, at no cost to the perpetrators.

MIT experts analyze financial crisis, debate cures

A panel of MIT faculty experts convened Oct. 7 to discuss current economic news. The panelists focused on different aspects of the history, the present unfolding, and the likely future of the financial mess, and emphasized that the situation is far more complex -- and the long-term outcome more uncertain -- than is typically portrayed.

Anthropogenic Climate Change: Science, Economics and Policy

If you'd asked Ronald Prinn a decade ago whether human activity played a significant part in global warming, he would have given you an "equivocal" answer. Today, he is no longer straddling the line.

George Soros on The New Paradigm for Financial Markets

In conversation with Ricardo Caballero, George Soros recounts the formative experience of his life -- surviving the German occupation of Hungary -- "a far from equilibrium situation." He credits his father for recognizing that "the normal rules don't apply" and falsifying documents permitting the family's escape from fascism.

The U.S. and the World's Recession

Roberto Rigobon summarizes preliminary research on worldwide inflation and recession, data that bring some grim tidings about our global economic state of health.

Challenges to the Global Economy

If economic analyses earned ratings like movies, this event would receive an X for extremely disturbing. Two of the field's most prominent voices spare any sugar coating in their unsettling accounts of the world's unfolding economic crisis.

Neuroeconomics

A pioneer in a "dangerously hot research area," Drazen Prelec peers into the human brain while it makes decisions. In his corner of the new field of neuroeconomics, Prelec uses a functional magnetic resonance imaging (fMRI) machine to scan minds pondering the pros and cons of purchasing and selling products like Godiva chocolate and flash drives.

Paint it Black: Avoiding the Financial Beast of Burden in 2009 and Beyond

James Poterba takes a scholarly approach to moderating this detailed discussion of the unfolding economic collapse, its ramifications on business, and the possible impact of governmental remedies.

Observations on the Science of Finance in the Practice of Finance

There will be a time "beyond crisis," asserts Robert C. Merton, who delves into the dense science of derivatives -- a field he has fundamentally shaped -- to explain how the vast global economic collapse has come about, and how financial innovations at the heart of the collapse could also be tools for reconstruction.

Intellectual Capital: Simon Johnson on the Financial Crisis

By now, the global financial crisis is something we're becoming all too familiar with. But knowing about it and knowing what to do about it are two distinctly different things. In this exclusive podcast, MIT Sloan economics expert Professor Simon Johnson provides studied insights on what the government and financial institutions need to do to turn things around. For Johnson, who recently returned to MIT after serving as chief economist at the International Monetary Fund, proper policy is a key step towards setting things right, as is strong, decisive, coordinated action.

Student Stories: Sana Keragani

Prime minister of the Canada Club. Co-president of the Salsa Club. Would-be entrepreneur. These are just a few of the many ways to describe how Sana Keragani spent her time at MIT Sloan. Having worked for a startup founded by Sloanies, Sana came to campus knowing a great deal about the nature of the School -- and that it was the perfect place for her to make the most of her inquisitive nature. Just before graduating, Sana spoke with correspondents Scott Rolph and Michelle Choate about her desire for a PhD in economics, the educational value of the Tech Treks, and singing songs in Swahili on Spring Break.

Warning: Physics Envy May be Hazardous to Your Wealth

Andrew Lo addresses the problem of finding the right level of abstraction with which to think about economic phenomena. He compares economics to physics, with some surprising results.

Lunch with a Laureate: Robert Merton

As an MIT Museum audience peppers him with queries ranging from the barter system to development, and the role of intuition in economics, Nobel Prize-winner Robert Merton pushes back against any assumptions that he might be a "renaissance man." He carefully steers listeners to his areas of expertise -- financial engineering and innovation, and risk management.

Intellectual Capital: Simon Johnson on the Financial Crisis, Part 3: 11/13/08

By now, the global financial crisis is something we're becoming all too familiar with. But knowing about it and knowing what to do about it are two distinctly different things.

Clearing houses could be the next source of chaos — Simon Johnson

From The Financial Times Financial shadows are dangerous. Even more dangerous are interactions between poorly understood shadows and essential financial intermediation activities. And most dangerous is when officials and private sector executives encourage a class of transactions that supposedly provide modest risk mitigation, while really building a disguised form of systemic risk on a grand scale. It was not mounting losses at Countrywide, the failure of Lehman Brothers or the imminent collapse of AIG that spelt disaster in September 2008. It was the connections between those lightly regulated businesses and Citigroup, Bank of America, Goldman Sachs, Société Générale, Barclays, UBS and Deutsche Bank. Where is the next generation of systemic risk hiding in plain sight? Look carefully at central clearing counterparties, or clearing houses, which are expanding due to the post-crisis requirement that standardised swaps – derivative transactions, including credit default swaps, that have standard terms along important dimensions – be cleared centrally. Clearing … Read More »The post Clearing houses could be the next source of chaos — Simon Johnson appeared first on MIT Sloan Experts.
