Virtual Discussion
  US Mountain Time

Our campus is closed to the public for this event.

This virtual discussion will follow J. Doyne Farmer's SFI Public Lecture on strategies for "doing economics better." A video and transcript of the Public Lecture will be distributed to registered discussion attendees in advance. In the virtual discussion itself, we will push Doyne to elaborate on the applications of his ideas that are most relevant to ACtioN members, such as investing, technology diffusion, and climate change mitigation. We will also allow ample time for members of the ACtioN community to ask Doyne specific questions related to their own work.
