Adjunct Associate Professor of Behavioral Science and Executive Director for Intellectual Capital at the University of Chicago’s Booth School of Business
– Hal Weitzman | Adjunct Associate Professor of Behavioral Science
Hal Weitzman is executive director for intellectual capital at the University of Chicago Booth School of Business. He is editor-in-chief of Chicago Booth Review and host of The Big Question, Booth’s monthly video panel discussion series. He was a reporter and editor at the Financial Times from 2000 to 2012—the last seven years of which he worked as a foreign correspondent in South America and Chicago. In addition to the FT, his reporting has appeared in The Economist, the Los Angeles Times, the Chicago Tribune, the Miami Herald, The New Statesman, The Irish Times, Slate, and Politico.
Weitzman’s experience in South America formed the basis for his 2012 book, Latin Lessons: How South America Stopped Listening to the United States and Started Prospering. His time as a reporter in Chicago led him to write “Chicago’s Decade of Innovation, 1972-1982.” A chapter covering the development of financial derivatives was published in the 2010 book, Regulated Exchanges: Dynamic Agents of Economic Growth.
