Antoinette Schoar is a professor of finance and entrepreneurship at the MIT Sloan School of Management.
Her current research concentrates on new financial technologies, consumer finance, and entrepreneurial finance.
She has won many awards, including the Kauffman Prize Medal for Distinguished Research in Entrepreneurship and the Brattle Prize for best paper in The Journal of Finance.
Antoinette is also a co-founder of ideas42, a non-profit that uses behavioral economics and psychology research to solve social problems.
She has a PhD in Economics from the University of Chicago and an undergraduate degree from Germany’s University of Cologne.
I first learned of her when I listened to her comments on Stephen Dubner’s Freakonomics podcast.
Her analysis of cryptocurrency was the most cogent I’d ever heard of, so I asked Stephen for an introduction, and here we are today.
