Welcome Address by Keynote Speaker
Stephen Dubner

An award-winning author, journalist, and radio and TV personality, Stephen J. Dubner is the co-author of the international bestsellers, Freakonomics and Superfreakonomics. Originally published in the United States in 2005, Freakonomics instantly became a cultural phenomenon. Hailed by critics and readers alike, it remained on The New York Times bestseller list after seven years, having sold more than 4 million copies around the world, in more than 35 languages.

Through forceful storytelling and wry insight, Dubner shows how economics is, at root, the study of
incentives – that is, how people get what they want, or need, especially when other people want or need the same thing. Dubner and his co-author, the University of Chicago economist Steven Levitt, have appeared widely on television, and maintain the popular Freakonomics blog, which has been called “the most readable economics blog in the universe.”
