Vernon Smith, professor of law and economics and winner of the 2002 Nobel Prize in Economics, lectures today at the Law School. The presentation, from 4 to 5:45 p.m., is held in Arlington I, Rooms 121 and 122, followed by a reception in the Atrium.

Smith’s presentation is a version of the address he delivered when he accepted the honor in Stockholm last year. The lecture, “Constructivist and Ecological Rationality in Economics,” draws upon his lifetime of work and contributions to the field of experimental economics, which led to his Nobel recognition.

The event is part of the Distinguished Lecture Series in Law and Economics presented by the James M. Buchanan Center for Political Economy. For information, call (703) 993-2330.
