Please join economist and author Dr. Frank Ackerman as he talks about his new book Worst Case Economics: Extreme Events in Climate and Finance (Anthem Press). 
“Ackerman’s Worst-Case Economics will convince you that the conventional economic modeling of risk is inadequate when financial crashes, environmental collapse and other cataclysmic outcomes are possible and that policies based on prudence regarding the worst-case scenario are needed. An important book and a delight to read.” —Samuel Bowles, Research Professor and Director, Behavioral Science Program, Santa Fe Institute, New Mexico, USA
Ackerman is Principal Economist at Synapse Energy and a lecturer at MIT. Other recent books include Can We Afford the Future? Economics for a Warming World (Zed Books, 2009), Poisoned for Pennies: The Economics of Toxics and Precaution (Island Press, 2008),[3] and Priceless: On Knowing the Price of Everything and the Value of Nothing (The New Press, 2004, with Lisa Heinzerling)


Bard’s MBA in Sustainability is one of a handful of programs around the world where  sustainability and a focus on mission-driven business is fully integrated into a graduate MBA curriculum.  Lear more at our Graduate Program Open House in NYC on 11/1.
