Diamond, Peter (born 1940)
Peter Diamond has made fundamental contributions to economic theory over a wide range of areas including search theory and its implications for unemployment (for which he was awarded the Nobel Memorial Prize), optimal taxation, which he pioneered with James Mirrlees, incomplete markets and their implications inter alia for the design of social insurance, and the role of government debt in fostering intergenerational efficiency. For most of his career, he has also been active in policy analysis, notably pensions.
