What My World's Like

AIDS from the perspective of an economist…changes your understanding of the disease.


There’s only so much one can translate from a 50-page paper to a 16-minute talk.  University of Chicago economist Emily Oster introduces some interesting ideas that definitely inform a more expansive way of thinking about AIDS, such a complex subject.  If you’re interested in reading her paper, please go here. It’s currently unpublished right now and she welcomes feedback and correspondence, either through the TED forum or privately.
