An Interview with Avinash Dixit


  • Oswald, Andrew J

    (Department of Economics, University of Warwick)


In this interview, which was recorded in 2007 to celebrate the receipt of an honorary doctorate from Warwick University, Avinash Dixit of Princeton University discusses why he is an economist and how he approaches economic research. He argues, among other things, for doing what you enjoy rather than what you feel you ought to do.
