C. Peter Timmer receives Leontief Prize at Tufts

C. Peter Timmer and Michael Lipton today receive the annual Leontief Prize for Advancing the Frontiers of Economic Thought from the Global Development and Environment Institute at Tufts University.  The 1983 book Food Policy Analysis by Timmer, Walter Falcon, and Scott Pearson influenced a generation of researchers in my field. 

Timmer and Lipton will be honored today, April 3, at 3:30 pm on the Tufts Medford Campus.  Timmer will give a Friedman School Seminar tomorrow, April 4, at the Jaharis Building on the Tufts Boston Campus.
