On Monday May 2, 2016, J-PAL will launch its new lecture series at MIT, D2P2: Data. Decisions. Public Policy. This public lecture series, designed to be accessible to the broader academic and Greater Boston communities, will feature engaging talks by J-PAL affiliates and other experts on economic research and how it can inform public policy.
The series will begin with an inaugural lecture by J-PAL affiliate Sendhil Mullainathan (Harvard University) titled, “The Psychological Lives of the Poor,” which will showcase his research on scarcity and its impact on mental bandwidth and decision-making. The event is open to the public and will be live webcast. Visit the J-PAL website to learn more about the event and register to attend.
