Peter Diamond 2010 Nobel Prize co-winnner in economics

This is Peter Diamond, co-winner of the 2010 Nobel Prize in Economics.

He's shown here reacting to a reporter's question:

With the midterm congressional elections less than three weeks away, do you agree with some politicians' campaign claims that the U.S. economy has turned the corner and the recession is over?

No, just kidding.

Actually, Diamond was merely celebrating here recently with colleagues at MIT.
