Rubinstein on Game Theory and Behavioral Economics
Ariel Rubinstein of Tel Aviv University and New York University talks with EconTalk host Russ Roberts about the state of game theory and behavioral economics, two of the most influential areas of economics in recent years. Drawing on his Afterword for the 60th anniversary edition of Von Neumann and Morgenstern's Theory of Games and Economic Behavior, Rubinstein argues that game theory's successes have been quite limited. Rubinstein, himself a game theorist, argues that game theory is unable to y

Moral Foundations of Politics (PLSC 118) Exploitation is an important technical--not normative--concept in the theory of Karl Marx. Although we are dealing with voluntary Pareto transactions, under capitalism, exploitation occurs whether or not an individual is better off. Capitalism is destined to fail, says Marx, because of (1) the possibility for liquidity crises, (2) the nature of capitalist competition inducing declining marginal profit on the industry-wide level, (3) the fact that capital

2011 Garage Science Fair Last week I got a chance to attend The Garage Science Fair at the 2011 Hardware Summit. The Garage at Microsoft is a place for employees to collaborate on interesting side-projects and share knowledge. A few times a year they put on Science Fairs where employees can show their creations to the rest of us 'Softies. Volunteer judges review the projects and Author(s):

Study of Representation and Expression of Race
This lecture is an introduction to part of the results of the researches called “An Interdisciplinary Study of Representation and Expression of Race” and made in collaboration with the Institute for Research in Humanities. Yet these results will be presented in a pleasant and intelligible manner. Why does the race still exist realistically even after such a long time the fact that a race does not exist biologically was elucidated? We will bring up the problem of the racial reality through th
The Energy of Light
In this introduction to light energy, students learn about reflection and refraction as they learn that light travels in wave form. Through hands-on activities, they see how prisms, magnifying glasses and polarized lenses work. They also gain an understanding of the colors of the rainbow as the visible spectrum, each color corresponding to a different wavelength.
Introduction to Christian Studies
