Peggy and Richard Musgrave Prize
Richard Musgrave (*1910 †2007) on his 90th birthday
The IIPF created the "Peggy and Richard Musgrave Prize" in 2003 to honor and encourage younger scholars whose work meets the high standards of scientific quality, creativity and relevance that has been a mark of the Musgraves’ contribution to public finance.
Authors who wish to be considered for the "Peggy and Richard Musgrave Prize" should indicate this when submitting their papers for presentation at the Congress.
The 2012 Peggy and Richard Musgrave Prize has been awarded to David Albouy (University of Michigan, USA) for his paper "Evaluating the Efficiency and Equity of Federal Fiscal Equalization".
