2006 Chicago Conference: Scenes
Edward Snyder, Dean of the Graduate School of Business, University of Chicago, exchanges greetings with Ronald Coase. The conference was co-sponsored by the George J. Stigler Center for the Study of the Economy and the State, University of Chicago.
Ronald Coase greets Tu Anh Vu Thanh arriving at the conference. Severe ice storms disrupted travel into Chicago, and some attendees had to drive ten hours through a blizzard or fly a day longer. Everyone managed to arrive eventually.
During a session in Gleacher Center, participants Nick Parker, Junlian Zhang, Eduardo Araral, and Erica Gorga listen intently to a presentation.
Steven Levitt lectures on "An Economist Sells Doughnuts: A Case Study in Profit Maximization" as Li Qi, Ivan Ribeiro, Danila Raskov, and Bhim Adhikari listen.
During lunches and dinners, young scholars including Danila Raskov and Ram Singh have the opportunity to enjoy food and conversation with Ronald Coase.
