A Guy From My Class Won the Nobel Prize
Douglas W. Diamond was in my Brown University class of 1975. On Oct. 10, 2022, the Royal Swedish Academy of Sciences announced that he is one of three recipients of the 2022 Nobel Prize in Economic Sciences. I didn’t know him, had nothing to do with him, but it’s cool nonetheless and his research is actually pretty meaningful to our daily lives.
One of his co-award winners is more well known, Ben Bernanke, who served as chairman of the Federal Reserve during the Obama administration.
