In 2019 it is 50 years and 30 years respectively since Ragnar Frisch and Trygve Haavelmo received The Sveriges Riksbank Prize in Economic Sciences in Memory of Alfred Nobel. The Department of Economics and the Faculty of Social Sciences invite to a celebration.
The celebration consists of three sections:
A seminar will be held to celebrate the works of Frisch and Haavelmo. Speakers will be Professor Robert W. Dimand and Professor Ariane Dupont, with comments by Professor Charles Manski and Professor Kalle Moene.
Next the Haavelmo lecture will be held by Professor Charles Manski.The Haavelmo lecture is a biennial event to celebrate the work of Haavelmo, and this year the lecture will be a part of the jubilee.
