SF The Innovator Next Door, Dan Johnson

Event Description - SF The Innovator Next Door, Dan Johnson
Join us on Saturday, Jan. 25, 2014, from 4 - 5:30 p.m. for fun, fellowship, and an intellectually intriguing presentation with Colorado College's Dan Johnson, associate professor and chair of Economics and Business. 

Johnson is an international expert on the economics of innovation in social networks, patent citation distances, and other areas of specialty. Often his work includes collaboration with student co-authors and it ranges "freakonomically" to include:
  • Research on the impact gasoline prices have on automotive technology
  • Wal-Mart's effects on house prices 
  • Game show contestant behavior 
  • Steve Jobs' effect on the stock market 
  • Predictive models of the Olympic Games 
  • Studies of whether gas is really cheaper just around the corner 
  • Optimal lending strategies for microfinance institutions 
  • What we can learn about markets from student bids for courses on the Block Plan
  • And so much more

You will not want to miss this chance to hear from one of the world's best economists!
