I am happy to report that Northwestern's Aviv Nevo will take academic leave to serve the US government as the next chief economist (technically, as Deputy Asssitant Attorney General for Antitrust) at DOJ Antitrust. Aviv's econometrics writing is very good and he has been involved in a number of antitrust cases. This is a high quality choice for Bill Baer and the DOJ Antitrust team. I am sure that Aviv's family has much nachat (very well deserved) from his appointment.
