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.

The economic future of China-Latin America relations — Stuart Krusell

What do the economies of Latin America and China have in common? They are both extremely interdependent on the other for growth. China purchases a significant percentage of raw materials from Latin America, which are used in the manufacturing of goods. Many of those goods are then sold back to Latin America. This cycle has increased over the last decade, as China’s trade with the region has surged more than 20-fold since 2000. So while they are competitors, they also are trade partners. It’s a slice of globalization that is representative of the larger world. China and Latin America’s relationship becomes even more intriguing when you consider the geo-political environments of both regions. What is the impact of Brazil’s elections on its trade partnership? Populist rhetoric to keep jobs local and not to be so dependent on China is appealing to many, but what happens to the region’s economy if … Read More »The post The economic future of China-Latin America relations — Stuart Krusell appeared first on MIT Sloan Experts.

The financial case for local manufacturing — Suzanne de Treville

From Outsource In the last 20 years, we’ve seen a massive wave of manufacturing jobs move to low-labour-cost countries. Now, many companies are beginning to question whether the cost differential offered by distant suppliers compensates for the cost of working with an extended supply chain. These companies find themselves with massive inventories, yet in spite of those inventories they frequently are not able to meet all demand. It has been difficult for managers to analyse the cost differential mismatch trade-off because mismatch costs are difficult to quantify. The intuition is that the mismatch costs are high, but the managers I discuss with have difficulty believing that overstocks and stockout costs are high enough to wipe out the cost advantage enjoyed by their offshore supplier. Without solid numbers, it’s difficult for managers to incorporate these costs into decision-making. At the same time, policymakers throughout the developed world have made a commitment … Read More »The post The financial case for local manufacturing — Suzanne de Treville appeared first on MIT Sloan Experts.

Job creation to meet population growth a daunting task — S.P. Kothari

From MoneyControl.com  In an exclusive interview with CNBC-TV18’s Malvika Jain on July 02, 2014, SP Kothari, Deputy Dean, MIT Sloan School of Management gave his take on the expectations from Arun Jaitely’s maiden Union Budget and his outlook on the road ahead for the Indian economy. Below is the verbatim transcript of the interview: Q: Government is in the process of preparing its first Budget since it took charge. What should be the priority areas where the government should focus? A: Mr. Jaitley has to recognize and Mr. Modi also has to recognize that changing the furniture around the house is not going to make the house look that much different. It might make it look somewhat different but that is not a game changer and they have to think in terms of policies that dramatically alter if the goal is to increase the per capita income from where it … Read More »The post Job creation to meet population growth a daunting task — S.P.
