The 2020 Goldman Lecture in Economics
Lisa D. Cook, professor of economics and international relations at Michigan State University, will deliver the 2020 Goldman Lecture in Economics: 150 Years of Violence and Economic Implications for Today.
In a recent paper, Cook shows the negative impact of violence on innovative activity and economic activity using patent and other data from the late 19th and early 20th centuries. Given recent events, she will present these findings, as well as how the evidence informs our understanding of current racial and political violence and its implications for economic and broader outcomes.
