Weekly Economics Seminar by Aakriti Mathur

February 19 @ 1:30 pm - 2:40 pm
AC 02 LR 105

Title: In the danger zone!

Understanding why is important for forecasting the extent to which banks would use this surplus to support lending in a crisis, and for calibrating macro-prudential policy.

Weekly Economics Seminar by Sushil Bikhchandani

March 4 @ 1:30 pm - 2:40 pm
AC 02 LR 105

Title: Selling Identical Objects Speaker: Sushil Bikhchandani, Professor of Economics, Anderson School of Management, UCLA Abstract: We investigate optimal selling mechanisms for identical objects.

CWC Event | Insular Poetry: Online workshop on Imagist Poetry by Shantam Goyal

June 20 @ 5:30 pm - 8:00 pm

We say we find some writing poetic, or perhaps a photograph or a painting, even a film. Or we find them lyrical, or flowery.
