External Professor Emeritus
Dr. Martin Shubik is currently the Seymour H. Knox Professor of Mathematical Institutional Economics at Yale University. The title indicates an interest in the underlying abstractions of mathematical economics combined with a stress on understanding actual institutions and processes. He received his B.A. and M.S. degrees in Mathematics and Political Economy from the University of Toronto, Ontario, Canadian 1947 and 1949 respectively. He received his A.M. and Ph.D degrees in Economics from Princeton University in 1951 and 1953 respectively. His main academic concerns are with the theory of money and financial institutions (how and why they are created and destroyed--and their social purpose) the theory of games and its relationship to strategic behavior and a third and somewhat different interest is in the management and economics of cultural institutions. He is the author of approximately twenty books and over 200 articles and specializes primarily in strategic analysis.
