     Andrew Schotter, professor of economics at New York University and the director of the Center for Experimental Social Science, will be the speaker at the 2022 Spring Henry George Seminar on April 20 from 4 to 5:15 p.m. in the McIlhenny Ballroom of the DeNaples Center. Schotter, whose areas of research interests include economic theory, game theory, and especially experimental economics, will give a talk entitled, “Social Learning and the Evolution of Conventions of Behavior.” The lecture is free of charge to University students, faculty and staff and members of the greater Scranton community.

    Dr. Schotter has published four books: “The Foundations of Positive and Normative Economics: A Handbook,” “Microeconomics: A Modern Approach,” “The Economic Theory of Social Institutions” and “Free Market Economics: A Critical Appraisal,” and more than 90 articles in leading economics journals including the European Economic Review, Economic Inquiry, Games and Economic Behavior, the Journal of Public Economic, and the American Economic Review.

He received the Kenan Enterprise Award from the William R. Kenan Jr. Charitable Trust, Chapel Hill, North Carolina.

    Considered the preeminent public lecture series on economics in Northeastern Pennsylvania, the Henry George Lecture Series is presented by the University’s Economics and Finance Department and the campus chapter of Omicron Delta Epsilon, an international honor society for economics. The lecture series is named in honor of the 19th-century American economist and social reformer and is supported financially by a grant from the Robert Schalkenbach Foundation.

    The University of Scranton health and safety protocols in place on April 20 outlined in the Royals Back Together plan must be followed by conference attendees.
