Economic Committee of the Hungarian Academy of Sciences led by Prof. Laszlo Muraközy are organizing a mini-conference in honour of the Nobel-laureates of 2016, Prof. Oliver Hart and Prof. Bengt Holmström. Since insitutional economics is a particularly strong movement in Hungary, presentations are going to be full of laudatory remarks and give a supportive account of the developments in contract theory. Special attention is going to be paid to the broader context, i.e. the interplay between contract theory and other currents in the institutional movement on the one hand and to the relationship between the main stream and institutional economics on the other hand. Because of the latter I am keenly interested in the event. I will get back with a short summary in time.
Here is the Facebook event.
Here is some additional information about the Nobel-prize in economics, 2016.
To my students attending the event is warmly recommended.
