Halbert L. White
On March 31, 2012, Bates White founder and University of California, San Diego professor of economics Halbert L. White died after a 4-year battle with cancer. Dr. White was one of the world’s leading economists, recognized for setting new research standards and influencing a broad range of economic disciplines. He had particular expertise in econometrics and pioneered innovative approaches to econometric methods, statistics, and modeling. Dr. White was widely recognized to be a contender for a Nobel Prize in Economics as identified by Thomson Reuters in the 2011 prediction of Nobel laureates.
To commemorate the tenth anniversary of the conference he founded, and to underscore the impact he has had on Bates White and wider academic communities, our annual antitrust conference will henceforth bear his name.
