Boston: An Evening With Professor Stuart J. Firestein
Presented by the Columbia Alumni Association of Boston
Thursday, February 02, 2017 from 6:00 - 9:00 p.m.
Algonquin Club, 217 Commonwealth Ave, Boston, 02116, MA

Cost: $30 early bird pricing ($10 discount) available before January 20; $40 afterward

Stuart J. Firestein is the former chair of Columbia University’s Department of Biological Sciences and has won the University’s Distinguished Faculty Award for excellence in scholarship and teaching. His research is dedicated to unraveling the intricacies of the mammalian olfactory system and his course on “Ignorance” is one of the most popular on campus. 

Professor Firestein will explain that science is the production of questions, not facts; that scientists spend their time on what they don’t know. A new fact or result in the lab serves primarily to frame a new and better question. The all-too-common myth of science as no more than an accumulation of facts is furthered by an educational system that teaches from textbooks and uses a bulimic approach to science education: force as many facts as possible down the students throats and then have them regurgitate them up on an exam. This leads to a public, even an educated public, who hold a distorted view of science. On the one hand this is simply a shame because science is so much a part of our lives and our culture and it’s a great adventure. On the other, more nefarious hand, it leaves the public vulnerable to manipulation by corporate and political interests.

AXA Advisors, LLC, 1290 Ave. of Americas, 4/F, New York, NY

Cost: $30 for alumni and guests.

Columbia Business School alumni are invited to join us for a panel discussion as experts share their views regarding the risks and opportunities on the road ahead in 2017.

The economic recovery and the bull market that succeeded the global financial crisis have been characterized by low inflation and a declining trend in bond yields. More recently, the unemployment figures have indicated that the economy enjoys something resembling full employment, and wages, commodity prices, and inflation appear to be rising more noticeably than before in this recovery. Moreover, given solid economic growth and payroll gains, the Fed has commenced a more sustained tightening cycle. It appears that yields have finally bottomed as the stock market continues to hit new highs. This is the scenario as the first year of a presidential cycle dawns. What do rising prices and interest rates mean for the economy and the markets going forward?

The panel consists of:


	
Maria Eugenia Heyaca, Vice President, US iShares Investment Strategy and Insights team, BlackRock
	
Maria Karahalis, Equity Investment Specialist, Capital Group, American Funds
	
Jason Nicastro, Assistant Vice President, Market and Investment Strategist, of the LPL Financial
