Wednesday, Nov. 14

Nobel Economist Robert Engle, PhD, will speak on “Risk and Globalization” at Pace University’s downtown Manhattan campus Wednesday, November 14 at 6 pm.

Engle is the fourth Nobelist in recent years to appear in a series sponsored by the Lubin School of Business at Pace, the Henry George Symposium. Past speakers have included Robert Mundell, Joseph Stiglitz and Edmund Phelps. The series is arranged by Pace management professor Robert Isaak, author most recently of “The Globalization Gap” (Prentice Hall, 2005).

Engle, a professor in the management of financial services at New York University, won the Nobel prize in economics (together with Clive Granger) for research analyzing how to see through non-stationary time-series via the “ARCH models.” His approach has had widespread applications in analyzing the risk of underlying financial assets given their volatility, helping practitioners in asset pricing and in evaluating portfolio risk.

WHERE AND WHEN: One Pace Plaza, Multipurpose Room, downtown New York City campus (east of City Hall), 6 p.m. Wednesday, November 14, 2007.

Open to the public. RSVP to Lucille Kenny, lkenny@pace.edu . Media admission by press card.
