“I use ‘disruptive’ in both its good and bad connotations. Disruptive scientific and technological progress is not to me inherently good or inherently evil. But its arc is for us to shape. Technology’s progress is furthermore in my judgment unstoppable. But it is quite incorrect that it unfolds inexorably according to its own internal logic and the laws of nature.”
In honor of Martin L. Weitzman, a symposium will be held with Keynote Speaker, William D. Nordhaus, Sterling Professor of Economics at Yale University. A reception with refreshments will follow the symposium.
