Nobel Prize winner Dr. Kenneth Arrow, professor at SIEPR, is one of the world’s most respected economists and has consistently been at the forefront of new and creative approaches to understanding societal issues and systems. Previous grants from the Hewlett Foundation to SIEPR have supported his development of a reformulation of the concept of wealth that includes not only financial assets, but also physical health, environmental factors, and psychological well-being. This grant would support further research primarily focused on two topics: policy formulation under conditions of risk and uncertainty, and clarification of the nature – and corresponding and utility functions - of individual and collective obligations to future generations.
