New School Seminar to Host Andreas Kopp

October 4, 2013

On Tuesday, October 8, 2013, Andreas Kopp of The World Bank will be addressing policy researchers and economists at the New School in New York City.  The presentation is entitled, “Indivisibilities, the Shapley value and fair prices for public sector services.”

Dr. Kopp is currently a Lead Economist in the Department for Transport, Water and ICT at The World Bank.  In his visit to New York, he is to discuss the concept of the Shapley value as it relates to fair pricing in the public sector, with specific insights from his research on the transportation sector.

His prior and current research has centered around the social and environmental costs of transportation, the role of transport for urbanization and trade, and low-carbon solutions to transportation systems expansion.  His most recent publication, which focuses on development in the low-carbon transport sector within the developing country context, can be found here.
