Speaker: Alvin Roth, Stanford University

Marketplaces are often small parts of large markets, and so potential marketplace participants may have large strategy sets, that include actions taken outside of the marketplace. And markets require social support, so the behavior of people who do not intend to participate in the market may nevertheless be important for market design. Professor Roth will illustrate these points with examples, drawing most heavily on the experience of kidney exchange. 

Alvin Roth is the 2012 Nobel Laureate in Economic Sciences and Craig and Susan McCaw Professor of Economics at Stanford University.
