Carey Lecture "Why Is Unemployment So High" with Robert Solow Thu, 15 Nov 2012 16:02:38 MST https://www.coloradocollege.edu/events/2012-12-04-w-p-carey-lecture-why-is-unemployment-so-high-with-robert-solow https://www.coloradocollege.edu/events/2012-12-04-w-p-carey-lecture-why-is-unemployment-so-high-with-robert-solow <p><em>Tuesday, December 4, 2012 7:30 PM</em></p><p>Robert M. Solow, a professor emeritus of economics at&nbsp;the Massacchussetts Institute of Technology, was awarded the 1987 Nobel Prize in Economic Sciences for his important contributions to theories of economic growth.<br />&nbsp;&nbsp;<br />In the 1950s, Solow developed a mathematical model illustrating how various factors can contribute to sustained national economic growth. Contrary to traditional economic thinking, he showed that advances in the rate of technological progress do more to boost economic growth than do capital accumulation and labor increases.<br />&nbsp;<br />In his 1957 article &ldquo;Technical Change and the Aggregate Production Function,&rdquo; Solow observed that about half of economic growth cannot be accounted for by increases in capital and labor. He attributed this unaccounted-for portion &mdash; now called the &ldquo;Solow residual&rdquo; &mdash; to technological innovation. From the 1960s on, Solow&rsquo;s studies helped persuade governments to channel their funds into technological research and development to spur economic growth. A Keynesian, Solow was a witty critic of economists ranging from interventionists such as John Kenneth Galbraith to free marketers such as Milton Friedman. He was awarded the National Medal of Science in 1999.</p> Concert Band Fall Performance Thu, 15 Nov 2012 16:44:04 MST https://www.coloradocollege.edu/events/2012-12-04-concert-band-fall-performance https://www.coloradocollege.edu/events/2012-12-04-concert-band-fall-performance <p><em>Tuesday, December 4, 2012 7:30 PM</em></p><p>The CC Concert Band, directed by Jeremy Van Hoy, presents "Our American Music (Part 1)."&nbsp; Andrew Pope, senior clarinet, is the featured soloist.&nbsp;Music by Bernstein, Ives, and Daugherty.</p> Expedition Down the Colorado: A Summer Exploring the Water Issues of the Southwest’s Great River Tue, 16 Jun 2015 12:03:43 MDT https://www.coloradocollege.edu/events/2012-12-04-19-expedition-down-the-colorado-a-summer-exploring-the-water-issues-of-the-southwest-s-great-river https://www.coloradocollege.edu/events/2012-12-04-19-expedition-down-the-colorado-a-summer-exploring-the-water-issues-of-the-southwest-s-great-river <p><em>Tuesday, December 4, 2012 7:30 PM</em></p><p class="MsoNormal">Three Colorado College graduates and State of the Rockies Project expedition members will speak about their "Down the Colorado" expedition from this past summer. The three explorers, Zak Podmore &rsquo;11, Will Stauffer-Norris &rsquo;11, and David Spiegel &rsquo;12 will recap their journey on the Colorado River from Rocky Mountain National Park to Lake Mead through a multimedia presentation detailing their experiences. Their journey ran from mid-June to early September 2012 and included some of the best whitewater in the country, a trip across Lake Powell on a solar powered raft, and daily water quality tests to monitor the river. The expedition&rsquo;s goal was to engage the river&rsquo;s stakeholders throughout the watershed while also raising awareness of water issues by educating the general public. Through dozens of interviews and hours of footage, the team has produced a film covering their work from the summer. Along with the film, the expedition members will show some of their photographs from this summer and speak about their experiences floating on the mighty Colorado for more than two months.</p> <p class="MsoNormal">Continuing on the successes of last year&rsquo;s Source-to-Sea journey by Will and Zak from the headwaters of the Green River to the Sea of Cortez, this expedition and film seek to further the State of the Rockies Project&rsquo;s goal of informing and engaging the citizens of the Rocky Mountain Region so that they might better shape the future of this beautiful, yet fragile, region.
