MIT's Samberg Conference Center


On Friday, May 4, there was a FTG Special Event on Contract Theory in Honor of Nobel Prize Winners Oliver Hart and Bengt Holmström held at the MIT's Samberg Conference Center, organized by Marcus Opp and Adriano Rampini.  The program (see below) was fantastic and the presentations were truly great.  So much so that many people asked for the slides. The presenters have been very generous and shared with us their slides which we post below by their names in the program.
