Robert A. Mundell was a member of the Johns Hopkins SAIS international economics faculty and taught at SAIS Europe four academic years during the period 1959-2001. Much of his pioneering work in monetary dynamics and optimum currency areas, which resulted in his Nobel Memorial Prize in Economic Science in 1999, was conducted during his time in Bologna. Professor Mundell plans to return to SAIS Europe for this special occasion.
This event is the inaugural lecture in the four-part series of the Johns Hopkins SAIS Global Risk Conference, intended for a non-technical audience. It is a central initiative to engage the policy and professional communities with the scholarship emerging from the school's Master of Arts in Global Risk. JOHN LIPSKY
