Professor Robert Shiller, Sterling Professor of Economics and a Nobel Prize Laureate, was awarded the Order of Merits of Lithuania by Second Consul General Vaclovas Šalkauskas. All four of Shiller’s grandparents came to the United States from Lithuania in 1910.
“I am extremely honored to present this award on the behalf of the president of Lithuania and I would like to wish Professor Robert Shiller strength and health to continue his work,” said Šalkauskas.
Shiller has written on financial markets, financial innovation, behavioral economics, macroeconomics, real estate, statistical methods, and on public attitudes, opinions, and moral judgments regarding markets. He was awarded the Nobel Prize in Economic Sciences jointly with Eugene Fama and Lars Peter Hansen in 2013.
