Nobel Prize in Economics goes to Peter Diamond, twice speaker at CeRP

MIT Professor Peter Diamond, along with Dale Mortensen and Christopher Pissarides, has been awarded the 2010 Nobel Prize in Economic Sciences.

CeRP is proud to have hosted Peter Diamond as keynote speaker on two occasions: at the first CeRP annual conference ‘Opting out of Social Security. Scope, Limits and Welfare Implications’ (June 2000) and at the 2003 annual conference ‘Is Mandatory Retirement an Outdated Feature of Pension Systems?’.

Peter Diamond has also published the work Towards an Optimal Social Security Design in the CeRP working paper series and has contributed to the CeRP volume Pension Systems: Beyond Mandatory Retirement” edited by Elsa Fornero and Paolo Sestito (Edward Elgar, 2005).

Below are some pictures of Peter Diamond taken at the 2003 conference.

We warmly congratulate Peter for the prize, and hope to have the pleasure to host him again in Turin soon.
