Rubinstein: Advice to Graduate Students

Prof Ariel Rubinstein offered the following personal advice to his graduate students during a recent "happy hour" at NYU:
Remember that you are one of the most privileged people on earth. Society has given you a wonderful opportunity. You are supposed to do whatever you want, to think about new ideas, to express your views freely, to do things in the way that you choose and on top you will be rewarded nicely. These privileges should not be taken for granted. We are extremely lucky -- we owe something in return.
Well said, indeed...

Prof Ariel Rubinstein (1951- )
