University of Oxford lecturer speaks to the Economics Society

Teaching Fellow in Finance and Accounting and Lecturer in Economics at the University of Oxford, Dr Arhat Virdi OA, joined the Economics Society’s virtual meeting to discuss his area of expertise – Game Theory. Game Theory is a framework for modelling strategic interaction amongst rational decision makers. Whilst only briefly touched on in the Economics A level syllabus, it forms a significant portion of many Microeconomics modules at undergraduate level. This was therefore, an exceptionally useful talk and Dr Virdi went into plenty of detail as to how the famous Prisoners’ Dilemma works and the principles behind Nash equilibrium, named after the mathematician, John Nash. The boys in attendance, from Year 9 to Year 13, including many of the new Year 11 economists, were treated to a fascinating insight into the study of Economics at a top university. We would like to thank Dr Virdi very much for his valuable time and for delivering such an intriguing and informative lecture. Economics Society returns next Thursday.
