The David K. Backus Memorial Lecture is held annually by the NYU Stern Center for Global Economy and Business. David Backus was the Heinz Riehl Professor of Economics at NYU Stern School of Business, and an intellectual leader, educational innovator and mentor to countless students and colleagues in his more than 25 years at Stern. The Lecture series has been established by his family, friends, colleagues, and students, and by Stern alumni, in memory of his contributions to the study and teaching of economics.
