Congrats to David on the 2009 Lavoie Prize!

It has been announced that TPSer David Skarbek has won one of this year's three Lavoie Prize for his paper on "Self-Governance in San Pedro Prison."

Here is a blog post where David summarizes this work, in which he explains why the San Pedro prison is among the safest prisons despite being governed by prisoners instead of guards.

Congrats, David!
