Trinity's Nobel Economists Lecture Series, begun in 1984 by Professor Emeritus and former E.M. Stevens Distinguished Professor of Economics William Breit, brings some of the most brilliant and influential economists of the post-war era to campus. Based on the general theme "My Evolution as an Economist," the lectures offer rare autobiographical insights into the Nobel laureate's contributions, the sources and nature of their discoveries, and their growth and development as economists.

Transcripts of the first 23 lectures appear in the fifth edition of the 2009 MIT Press volume, Lives of the Laureates, edited by professors William Breit and Barry Hirsch. Click here to view a photo gallery of recent speakers.
