Jonathan Levin wins John Bates Clark Medal

One of our friends/readers -and former Stanford affiliate- has pointed us to some other news that we missed in the past few days:

The John Bates Clark medal -a sort of Nobel Prize for economists under 40 (in fact, a significant majority of its awardees have later received the Nobel)- has been awarded to Jonathan Levin

For those who don´t know him, Levin is a Stanford Professor who has written extensively on industrial organization and whose research interests are now mainly focused on the internet and online markets. For a list of his publications and ongoing research check out his impressive CV.

Other curious facts: Levin is the son of Yale University President Richard Levin, and earned his PhD at the MIT, where he belonged to the same PhD class as the two other most recent awardees of the Bates Clark medal: Emmanuel Saez and Esther Duflo.
