Can game theory help decision makers? “Sometimes” seemed to be the answer, in a wide-ranging dialogue between Dr. Thomas Schelling, recipient of the 2005 Nobel Prize in Economics, and William Mayer, senior partner of Park Avenue Equity Partners and former dean of the Smith School. The discussion was held at the BB&T Colloquium on Capitalism, Ethics and Leadership on Thursday, November 8, 2012. The annual event, hosted by the Center for Leadership, Innovation and Change (CLIC), is sponsored by BB&T and held at the University of Maryland’s Robert H. Smith School of Business.
Just before launching their real estate panel discussion, the moderator and panelists abruptly abandoned the stage and instructed the audience to encircle and join them on the main floor. An intimate, spirited discussion ensued as both experts and inquisitive MBAs delved into the state of Washington, D.C.’s commercial real estate industry and its broader implications.
