Musgrave Prize

UM graduate student David Agrawal won the Musgrave prize for the best paper by an economist under 40 presented at the International Institute for Public Finance (IIPF) conference held in Ann Arbor last week.

Given that nearly everyone at the conference was under 40, and that there was stiff competition not only from faculty but also from some of our other graduate students, I would say that this is quite an honor.

So, congratulations David!

Oh, and David is on the job market this year. Hint, hint.

Addendum: not sure why the web page lists David's affiliation as the University of Copenhagen. He's not even Danish.

Addendum 2: the winning paper can be found on David's web page. It is the one about the tax gradient.
