Peter Diamond is an American economist acclaimed for his analysis of U.S. Social Security policy. He is currently serving as an Institute Professor of Economics at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology, an institution where he has been since 1966. In 2010, Diamond was awarded the Sveriges Riksbank Prize in Economic Sciences in Memory of Alfred Nobel for his analysis of the foundation of search markets. Prior to researching search markets, he worked as an advisor to the Advisory Council on Social Security in the late 1980s and 1990s and a consultant in Congressional Finance Committee hearings. His honors and awards include a Guggenheim Fellowship, being a founder of the National Academy of Social Insurance, the Nemmers Prize, and a Fulbright Fellowship. Diamond’s numerous publications cover tax and social security policy, with his last two books entitled Pension Reform: A Short Guide and Reforming Pensions: Principles and Policy Choices in 2010 and 2008 respectively. He graduated summa cum laude to receive his B.A. in Mathematics from Yale University and went on to earn a Ph.D. in Economics from M.I.T.
