Levy Named New Brazil Finance Minister
Joaquim Levy (Ph.D. '93, Economics) has been named Brazil's new finance minister by President Dilma Rousseff. Levy began his career upon graduation as Professor of Economics at Fundação Getúlio Vargas. He later held multiple positions at the International Monetary Fund in its Western Hemisphere, European I, and Research Departments, from 1992 to 1998. In 2000, he was appointed Deputy Secretary of Economic Policy at Brazil’s Ministry of Finance, and in 2001 became Chief Economist at Brazil's Ministry of Planning, Budget, and Management. He also served as vice-president at the Inter-American Development Bank, as a Visiting Economist at the European Central Bank, and as Finance Secretary of Rio De Janeiro state. Levy begins his term as Finance Minister in January 2015.
Department of Economics chair Professor John List has been awarded an honorary doctorate by Tilburg University. In his Nov. 20th keynote lecture at the university's Dies Natalis anniversary celebration, List described how his research helps explain why people do what they do in everyday situations - and how incentives can change their behavior. Tilburg University calls him "a true pioneer in experimental field research," whose innovative work has "finally made it possible to test behavioral economic theory in everyday practice...He has raised this research area to a higher level with his originality, expertise, and impact, and he is an inspiration to many."
