A Nobel Prize Winner

Yesterday I shot Edmund Phelps and his wife Viviana. Phelps, an economist and a Columbia University professor, is the winner of the 2006 Nobel Prize for his research showing that wage and price trends depend on expectations for both inflation and unemployment. Okay I did not get that last part either. But he is very smart and extremely friendly.

The first photo on their piano was of John Nash another Nobel Prize winner who was portrayed in the movie A Beautiful Mind. They pointed out the photo to me as I was taking their picture!
