“The Value of Money: Currencies, Bonds, Bitcoin” will be discussed at the University of Scranton’s 35th Henry George Lecture on Wednesday, November 17. The lecture, presented by Yuliy Sannikov, Ph.D., the Jack Steele Parker Professor of Economics at the Stanford Graduate School of Business, will begin at 7:30 p.m. in the McIlhenny Ballroom of the DeNaples Center.
The conference is free and open to members of the university community and guests.
Dr. Sannikov is an economic theorist whose work has not only broken new ground in methodology, but has also had considerable influence on applied theory. He has made important contributions to the study of dynamic games, which have applications to security design, contract theory, macroeconomics with financial frictions, market microstructure, and collusion.
Dr. Sannikov’s work shows how even simple, well-studied models can produce new knowledge. His most recent work focused on complex models in finance and macroeconomics. Its methods allow models to include the most important forces and provide much more relevant results. He is one of the few theorists in many years who introduced a truly new tool that changed the way theory is developed.
Dr. Sannikov was awarded the John Bates Clark Medal in 2016. The Clark Medal is awarded annually to the American economist under the age of forty considered to have made the most significant contribution to economic thought and knowledge. He received the Fischer Black Prize in 2015 and the Kiel Excellence Award in Global Economic Affairs in 2014.
Dr. Sannikov’s numerous scientific articles have been published in Econometrics, The American Economic Review: Macroeconomics, The Finance Journal, The review of economic studies and several other magazines.
Dr. Sannikov received a bachelor’s degree in mathematics from Princeton University in 2000 and a Ph.D. in business administration from the Stanford School of Business in 2004. He was a professor of economics at Princeton University from 2008 to 2016.
