    bio:

    Bruce Carruthers received his Ph.D. at the University of Chicago in 1991. His areas of interest include comparative and historical sociology, economy and society, sociology of law and sociology of organizations. At Northwestern, Carruthers is involved in the graduate Comparative Historical Social Science (CHSS) program, and the undergraduate Business Institutions Program (BIP).

     

    bio2:

    His current research projects include a study of the historical evolution of credit as a problem in the sociology of trust, regulatory arbitrage, what modern derivatives markets reveal about the relationship between law and capitalism, and the regulation of credit for poor people in early 20th Century America. He has had visiting fellowships at the Russell Sage Foundation and the Radcliffe Institute for Advanced Study, and received a John Simon Guggenheim Fellowship. He is methodologically agnostic, and does not believe that the qualitative/ quantitative distinction is worth fighting over. Northwestern is Carruthers' first teaching position.

    Carruthers has authored or co-authored five books, City of Capital: Politics and Markets in the English Financial Revolution(Princeton, 1996), Rescuing Business: The Making of Corporate Bankruptcy Law in England and the United States (Oxford, 1998),Economy/Society: Markets, Meanings and Social Structure (Pine Forge Press, 2000), Bankrupt: Global Lawmaking and Systemic Financial Crisis (Stanford, 2009), and Money and Credit: A Sociological Approach (Polity Press, 2010).

    bio:

    Deirdre McCloskey teaches economics, history, English, and communication at the University of Illinois at Chicago. A well-known economist and historian and rhetorician, she has written sixteen books and around 400 scholarly pieces on topics ranging from technical economics and statistics to transgender advocacy and the ethics of the bourgeois virtues. She is known as a "conservative" economist, Chicago-School style (she taught for 12 years there), but protests that "I'm a literary, quantitative, postmodern, free-market, progressive Episcopalian, Midwestern woman from Boston who was once a man. Not 'conservative'! I'm a Christian libertarian."

    bio2:

    Her latest book, Bourgeois Dignity: Why Economics Can't Explain the Modern World (University of Chicago Press, 2010), which argues that an ideological change rather than saving or exploitation is what made us rich, is the second in a series of four on The Bourgeois Era. The first was The Bourgeois Virtues: Ethics for an Age of Commerce (2006), asking if a participant in a capitalist economy can still have an ethical life (briefly, yes). With Stephen Ziliak she wrote in 2008, The Cult of Statistical Significance (2008), which criticizes the proliferation of tests of "significance," and was in 2011 the basis of a Supreme Court decision

    bio:

    Gregory Berns, M.D., Ph.D. is the Distinguished Professor of Neuroeconomics at Emory University, where he directs the Center for Neuropolicy. He is a Professor in the Economics Department. He is a founding member of the Society for Neuroeconomics. He is the author of Satisfaction: The Science of Finding True Fulfillment (Henry Holt & Co., 2005) and Iconoclast: What Neuroscience Reveals About How To Think Differently (Harvard Business School Press, 2008). He graduated cum laude in physics from Princeton University, received a Ph.D. in biomedical engineering from the University of California, Davis and an M.D. from the University of California, San Diego. He subsequently completed a psychiatry residency at Western Psychiatric Institute and Clinic in Pittsburgh, PA.

    bio2:

    Dr. Berns specializes in the use of brain imaging technologies to understand human motivation and decision-making. His interest is in neuroeconomics and neuropolitics. Current projects include the biology of decision making and how peer pressure affects the brain. He also uses neuroimaging to understand moral decision making. He has received numerous grants from the National Institutes of Health, National Science Foundation, and the Department of Defense and has published over 40 peer-reviewed original research articles, in such journals as Science, Nature, and Neuron. Dr. Berns' research is frequently the subject of popular media coverage including articles in the New York Times, Wall Street Journal, Money, Oprah, Forbes, The Financial Times, The New Scientist, Wired, Washington Post, Chicago Tribune, International Herald Tribune, and Los Angeles Times. He speaks frequently on CNN and NPR, and has been profiled on ABC's Primetime.

    more:

    Description: Brain imaging technologies, especially functional magnetic resonance imaging (fMRI), have resulted in new ways of looking at human decision making. Early studies of the brain focused on the reward system, which soon gave way to linking activity in the reward system to the decisions that people make. The field of neuroeconomics grew out of the observation that activity in the human reward system could be related to aspects of expected utility theory and prospect theory. Such results are now being extended beyond the study of individual decision making to the biology of how markets are an aggregation of brains and how these markets assimilate information such as stock prices and earnings announcements.
