Tom Rietz Of Iowa
Iowa Electronic Markets (IEM) are real-money futures markets
in which students and professionals trade contracts of
everything from US politics to Federal Reserve monetary
policy to computer returns. These markets are operated by
faculty at the University of Iowa Tippie College of Business
as part of its research and teaching mission.
Thomas Rietz, Associate Professor of Finance at the University
of Iowa, is an Iowa Electronic Markets manager.
Rietz uses a combination of theoretical, empirical, and experimental
work to research two primary areas: financial markets and decisions, and elections and voting decisions.
He served three terms as the section head for finance on the
executive committee of the Economic Science Association,
the professional organization for experimental economists.
Recently, Rietz was appointed to the interdisciplinary Preferences
Network Risk Research Initiative of the MacArthur
STOCKS & COMMODITIES Interim Editor John Sweeney
interviewed Rietz on November 8, 2000, to find out what Iowa
Electronic Markets reveal about politics and trading.
