This week, Jason Owen-Smith from the University of Michigan will present his upcoming book. He has provided one of the chapters: “What Do Research Universities Do? How Academic Discovery Creates Public Value.” As usual, we will be meeting in Cheit 320, 12:40-2pm.
Last week, Raj Chetty of Stanford treated us to his tax data analysis of the lives of inventors. Bottom line: women and low-income inventors with good math skills need to be exposed to the opportunities of technology careers.
