Stijn Van Nieuwerburgh opinion article
Professor Stijn Van Nieuwerburgh has been awarded the 2015 Bernácer Prize, which is given annually to a European economist under the age of 40 who has made outstanding contributions in the fields of macroeconomics and finance. The Prize recognizes his influential research on the transmission of shocks in the housing market on the macro-economy and the prices of financial assets. This is the fourth time in six years that a Stern professor has won the prize (Thomas Philippon, 2013; Xavier Gabaix, 2010; Lasse Pedersen, 2011).
