    He was the William Stuart Tod Professor of Economics and Public Affairs at the Woodrow Wilson School of Public and International Affairs. He was dean of the Woodrow Wilson School of Public and International Affairs at Princeton University from 1995 through 2001. Rothschild has written on asymmetric information, decision-making under uncertainty, demography, investment, taxation, finance, and jury-decision processes. He co-authored one of the most important papers in economics, Equilibrium in Competitive Insurance Markets: An Essay on the Economics of Imperfect Information with Joseph Stiglitz. This paper gives the first systematic exposition of the problem of cherry picking when insurance companies compete for customers. In Increasing Risk Rothschild and Stiglitz introduced the important decision theory concept of the mean-preserving spread, which leads to a partial ordering of probability distributions according to degree of risk. Rothschild has written on asymmetric information, decision-making under uncertainty, demography, investment, taxation, finance, and jury-decision processes. Current research focuses on higher education. He coauthored Uncertainty in Economics: Readings and Exercises, and coedited Studies of Supply and Demand in Higher Education. Rothschild is a fellow of the American Academy of Arts and Sciences, the American Association for the Advancement of Science, and the Econometric Society. Rothschild served as dean of the Woodrow Wilson School from 1995 to February 2002. Ph.D. Massachusetts Institute of Technology. In 2001, the laureates of the Nobel Prize in Economics were George A. Akerlof, A. Michael Spence as well as J. E. Stiglitz "for their analyses of markets with asymmetric information". So one could say, Rothschild contributed to these prizes. Rotheschild says of this achievement, " I think I’m a bit prouder of the fact that when we did our work it was merely speculative. WE reasoned that this was the way that things had to work. Subsequent empirical work has shown that we were absolutely correct. All attempts to reform healthcare have had to deal with what we discovered since. This is why there is an individual mandate in both Rommney care and Obama care and why last June’s Supreme Court Decision was so important."

                The auditing profession claims to have been through tremendous turmoil as a result of a spate of scandals and professionals being caught off-guard, yet a few years on the profession looks remarkably similar to what it was and investors continue to express dissatisfaction. A number of proposals for radical change have been aired, but these never seem to move beyond the late-evening-port stage. Professor Joshua Ronen, Professor of Accounting, New York University Leonard N Stern School of Business, delivered a lecture on Financial Statements Insurance, after which Professor Michael Mainelli, Mercers' School Memorial Professor of Commerce at Gresham College talked about Stochastic Accounting.

                  Markets are one of the greatest tools to emerge from society, yet a host of critics ranging from the opponents of globalisation through government officials and NGOs believe that markets need stricter regulation. We will examine why governments have awkward dealings with markets and what might improve things.

                      The Mises Seminar is the only conference in Australia to promote the Austrian school of economics and Rothbardian-Hoppe style libertarianism. The Mises Seminar is an uncompromising advocate of free market capitalism and private property rights. Keeping with this commitment, we're proud to announce that Professor Walter Block will be the keynote speaker for this year's seminar. The seminar will take place in Sydney at the Establishment Ballroom on the 1-2 December, 2012. I got a chance to sit down and chat with Professor Block about his story, Austro-libertarianism and the future of the liberty movement. Please register to attend the conference at: http://mises.org.au/2012/ticket
