Kaiser Professor Emeritus of Business, Economics and Law at UC Berkeley’s Haas School of Business and a professor of economics in the College of Letters and Science, shares the 2009 prize with Elinor Ostrom, a professor of political science and of public and environmental affairs at Indiana University in Bloomington.
