An Interview With Paul Samuelson

A few days ago I wrote about Paul Samuelson's view about the economic recovery and the strength of the U.S. dollar. Today, a new interview with Professor Samuelson has been published in the Atlancis. Professor Samuleson won the John Bates Clark Award (1947) and the Nobel prize (1970) and made important contributions to the fields of welfare economics, public economics/finance, and consumer/utility theory.

In other news about Nobel laureates, today is George Akerlof's birthday. Professor Akerlof will be in Calgary next week for a meeting of the Canadian Institute for Advanced Research.
