Nobel Laureate and University of Chicago economist Gary Becker will give a public lecture titled "The Worldwide Boom in Higher Education and Why the United States is Falling Behind." Becker, who won the Nobel Memorial Prize for Economic Science in 1992, the National Medal of Science in 2000, and the Presidential Medal of Freedom in 2007, is the author of 10 books and more than 100 professional articles. He is an expert in human capital, economic incentives, economics of the family, and economic analysis of crime, discrimination, and population. Becker has a Ph.D. in economics from the University of Chicago, where he has taught since 1968. In his research Becker acquired a reputation for applying methods of economic analysis to areas once considered outside the scope of economics. This included the economics of marriage, the demand for children, and studies of crime and punishment. His talk is co-sponsored by the Berry Center for Economics, Business, and Public Policy and the Roe Howard Freedom Lecture. This is the sixth in the Roe Howard Freedom Lecture Series. Previous speakers include David Weddle, Amity Shlaes, Mark Steyn, Dinesh D'Souza, and Richard Thaler. The lecture series is funded through the generosity of the Riesen Foundation and Cornell trustee and Dean Riesen '79 and Barbara Hull Riesen '82.
