Dr. Roberto Rigobon is Professor of Applied Economics at the MIT Sloan School of Management. He has been teaching and advising students at Sloan for over 20 years, and he has won both the "Teacher of the Year" award and the "Excellence in Teaching" award at MIT three times. He has an exuberant personality and made an interview effortless with his stories and analogies. We sat down in his office and talked about his theory of “Aggregate Confusion” and how we measure the wrong things at the wrong time.
