Inflation destroyed the Roman empire and laid the political and economic foundations for World War II. Is the inflation we are currently experiencing a threat to not only our standard of living but our very civilization? On this internship students will learn what the phenomenon of inflation is, how it is measured, and what causes inflation. Students will also examine past historical instances of inflation and their particular causes. Finally, students will conduct research on what current mainstream and historic economic models of inflation have have to say about our current situation, and will utilize these frameworks to produce a prediction of expected future inflation. 

During this month-long Internship you will research the economics of inflation and examine its potential impact on the global economy. Collaborating with your fellow interns, you will undertake research on this timely and crucial issue, and (with your Mentor's guidance) you will co-author an academic research paper for publication.

Mainstream academic theory defines investment risk as 'volatility' as calculated by 
standard deviation. However, opinion is divided among the academic community as to the the validity of this metric, and some of the world's most successful investors such as Warren Buffett, Charlie Munger, and Mark Cuban openly reject it. On this internship you will (i) discover why standard deviation is used to measure investment risk and discover its limitations, (ii) investigate and critique alternative conceptions of investment risk, (iii) recognize how deficient metrics for investment risk may have directly led to historically significant investment losses and asset bubbles such as the infamous Long-Term Capital Management (LTCM)
collapse, and (iv) theorize how a more ideal measure of investment risk might be formulated and estimated in practice.

During this month-long Internship you will conduct original research on the formulation and measurement of investment risk. Collaborating with your fellow interns, you will investigate and more deeply understand this fundamental financial concept, and (with your Mentor's guidance) you will co-author an academic research paper on this topic for publication.
