Matthew Richardson (New York University Professor)

Matthew Richardson is a New York University, USA, professor, the Charles E. Simon Professor of Applied Economics in the Finance Department at the Leonard N. Stern School of Business. He is also the Sidney Homer Director of the Salomon Center and a Research Associate of the National Bureau of Economic Research.

Prof. Matthew Richardson was drawn to media attention when apparently accidentally impersonated by a British University of Oxford engineering undergraduate by the same name, who took up the offer to perform a series of lectures in Beijing, managing to use a low level text book to "blag" through two days of lectures before fleeing from his Chinese audience. He claims to have known "next to nothing" about the subject and used an A-level text book as his notes.
