Harvard’s Richard Zeckhauser To Discuss On-Line Auctions Nov. 13

The Quinnipiac-Yale Dispute Resolution Workshop series continues Tuesday, Nov. 13, with a lecture by Harvard University Professor Richard J. Zeckhauser on “Trust in On-Line Auctions.” His related paper is attached. The lecture will be held in the Yale Law School Faculty Lounge from 4:10 to 6 p.m.  Please respond by calling 203-582-5299.

Professor Zeckhauser is the Frank Plumpton Ramsey Professor of Political Economy at Harvard's John F. Kennedy School of Government.  Much of his conceptual research examines possibilities for democratic, decentralized allocation procedures. His policy investigations explore ways to promote the health of human beings, to help markets work more effectively, and to foster informed and appropriate choices by individuals and government agencies.

He is author, with Yale Law School Professor Peter Schuck, of the 2006 book, Targeting in Social Programs: Avoiding Bad Bets and Removing Bad Apples. His forthcoming book, with Jonathan Nelson, is The Patron's Payoff: Economic Frameworks for Conspicuous Commission in Renaissance Italy.

Professor Zeckhauser holds a B.A. and a Ph.D in economics from Harvard University.

The Quinnipiac-Yale Dispute Resolution Workshop is a collaboration between the two law schools to host lectures by distinguished scholars and practitioners in the field of dispute resolution. Some of the talks are held at the Quinnipiac Law School Faculty Commons and some are held in the Yale Law School Faculty Lounge.  The talks are structured to allow time for questions and discussion. They are free and open to the public.  For more information, please call Jennifer Brown, 203-582-3246, or email jennifer.brown@quinnipiac.edu.
