Marcus Brunnermeier gets Bernacer 2008

Marcus Brunnermeier of Princeton gets the Bernacer award for 2009 (see previous winners’ list here). It is the European equivalent of Clark Medal awarded to promising European economists under age 40 (though most are now based in US Univs).

His papers have helped explain the recent crisis closely mimicing the practices of financial markets and its players.

 A useful summary of his research is provided by José Manuel González-Páramo of ECB here. He himself has a summary of his work here  (he calls it outdated though)
