Nora Lustig, the Samuel Z. Stone Professor of Latin American Economics in the School of Liberal Arts at Tulane University, has received the 2016 Lawrence M. v. D. Schloss Prize for Excellence in Research.

The prize is awarded to professors or students who show outstanding work in the Department of Economics. This year the department’s selection committee voted unanimously for Lustig.

“The Schloss Prize is allowing me to spend time in Argentina to complete a study on fiscal policy and income redistribution, and will allow me to spend time in the Paris School of Economics next spring to work with professor Francois Bourguignon, one of the leading scholars on inequality research worldwide,” she said.

Lustig is also the director of the Commitment to Equity Institute (CEQI) at Tulane and is part of the team developing a handbook for policymakers, economists and others explaining CEQI’s “theory and practical methods … for determining the impact of fiscal policy on inequality and poverty.”
