Nobel Prize winner returning to KU campus

April 23, 2005


Vernon Smith, the Kansas University alumnus who won the 2002 Nobel Prize for economics, will return to campus this month for a lecture.

Smith will deliver "World Issues and the Role of the Economist" at 7 p.m. Wednesday in Woodruff Auditorium in the Kansas Union.

Smith, well-known in the field of experimental economics, recently participated in the Copenhagen Consensus, which drew some of the world's top economists to answer the question, "How would you spend $50 billion on the world's most pressing issues?"

Smith received his degree from KU in 1952 and is the only KU graduate to have received a Nobel Prize.
