2018 Nobel Economic Science Laureate Paul Romer will be a keynote speaker at the XV SNMPE SYMPOSIO

The National Society of Mining, Petroleum and Energy (SNMPE) has announced Paul Romer, 2018 Nobel Prize for Economic Sciences, as keynote speaker at the SIMPOSIO – XV International Mining Meeting, to be held next May 21-23 at the JW Marriott Hotel in Lima.

Mr. Romer will be a keynote speaker as part of the session “Macroeconomic and Geopolitical Perspectives and their impact on Latin America”, which will take place on the first day of the XV SIMPOSIO. After his lecture, he will discuss with two important Peruvian economists: Alonso Segura, former Minister of Economy and Finance and Founding Partner of HacerPerú; and Diego Macera, Director of the Peruvian Institute of Economics (IPE) and member of the Board of Directors of the Central Reserve Bank of Peru (BCR).

Paul Romer is a university professor at Boston College, where he heads its new Center for the Economics of Ideas. In 2018, he was awarded the Nobel Prize in Economics for his work on endogenous growth theory.

Romer served as chief economist at the World Bank, where he served in advancing the multilateral institution’s critical research function. He was founding director of the Marron Institute for Urban Management at New York University, which aims to help cities plan for their future and improve health, safety and transportation for their citizens. He also launched the concept of a city-scale startup he called Charter City, after the first U.S. constitution.

Romer’s other contributions to public policy include his work with the U.S. Department of Justice on the Microsoft antitrust case and his service on Singapore’s Independent Academic Advisory Panel on University Policy.

He is currently a research associate at the National Bureau of Economic Research (NBER), a fellow of the American Academy of Arts and Sciences, and a non-resident scholar at the Macdonald Laurier Institute in Ottawa, Ontario. In 2002 he received the Recktenwald Prize for his work on the economics of ideas.
