MDI Science Café — The Search for Truth in Science and Economics: Some Surprising Connections
David Dawson, Ph.D., will deliver a talk entitled:”The Search for Truth in Science and Economics: Some Surprising Connections.”
The long history of interactions between natural science and economics will be the subject of the June 24 MDI Science Café. The presentation will be delivered by David C. Dawson, Ph.D., a retired physiologist and former director of the MDI Biological Laboratory, whose studies in economics have focused on the more than two centuries of efforts directed at identifying natural laws governing economic systems -- efforts which ask if there are “economic principles” that can be expressed mathematically and tested experimentally.
The location of this MDI Science Café is the Kinne Library at the MDI Biological Laboratory, located at 159 Old Bar Harbor Rd in Salisbury Cove, Maine.
Doors open at 4:30 p.m.
MDI Science Cafés are offered in fulfillment of the institution’s mission to promote scientific literacy and increase public engagement with science. The popular events offer a chance to hear directly from speakers about trends in science. Short presentations delivered in everyday language are followed by lively, informal discussion.
