Rani's extraordinary honour is of the greatest significance. The year 2010 will be an inexhaustible source of pride for future generations of economists. Our understanding of the world that surrounds us is almost complete, with the possible exception of Iceland. The relentless publication of rankings of economists and economics departments has played an essential part in this accomplishment.Confident that knowledge of his relative position among women economists will bring Rani's research to new heights, I salute his achievement.

Professor Spiegler has proved that he is not only a brilliant theorist of the multi-selves model, but also its supreme practitioner.

Raniís achievement is another proof of the extraordinary power of incentives.

Many of us have been deploring the small number of women in the sciences. Rani Spieglerís achievement may point the way forward.
