Experts Convene for Workshop on “Darwin’s Business: New Evolutionary Thinking”

NYU Stern’s Business & Society Program Area and the Evolution Institute co-hosted a workshop for a small working group of 20 participants and 25 audience members to assess the possible applications of evolutionary thinking – including gene-culture co-evolution, multi-level selection and the multiple paths by which humans became ultrasocial creatures – for business and business ethics. Jonathan Haidt, Thomas Cooley Professor of Ethical Leadership and author of The Righteous Mind, chaired the event. Other featured speakers from NYU Stern included Paul Romer, professor of economics and director of The Urbanization Project, and Robert Frank, visiting professor and author of The Darwin Economy and Passions Within Reason.
