Robert Frank at UCLA this Friday

Korn Convocation Hall, Friday from 1-3, speaking on his new book, The Darwin Economy.

Robert Frank’s new book, The Darwin Economy, is a fascinating document: pointing out, for example, the the Pareto Principle isn’t really consistent with a species driven by sexual selection.

This Friday Bob will be at UCLA, giving the Marschak Memorial Lecture. (Korn Convocation Hall at the Anderson School, 1-3.) For those who have never heard Bob lecture, it’s a treat not to be missed.

There’s a lunch beforehand. If you’re in town and want to come to the talk, it’s open. If you want to come to lunch, send me an email.
