Daniel Diermeier, the IBM Distinguished Professor of Regulation and Competitive Practice, was honored in November by the Aspen Institute's Center for Business Education with a 2007 Faculty Pioneer Award. The award recognizes business school faculty who teach, research, practice and otherwise advance the principles of socially responsible leadership. Diermeier, the "Institutional Impact" category winner, was one of 10 recipients selected from a record 136 nominees.

Associate Professor of Finance Andrea Eisfeldt recently published three papers. "Smoothing with Liquid and Illiquid Assets" appeared in the September Journal of Monetary Economics. With co-authored Adriano Rampini, Eisfeldt published "New or Used? Investment with Credit Constraints" in the November issue of the same journal and "Managerial Incentives, Capital Reallocation, and the Business Cycle" in the Journal of Financial Economics.

Donald Haider, professor of social enterprise and of management and strategy, served on the advisory committee on self-regulation of the charitable sector from 2006 to 2007. He notes that its October report, "Principles for Good Governance: A Guide for Foundations and Charities," has led to 57,000 copies being ordered and endorsement by 250 charities.

In December, an international game science conference was held in Jerusalem in honor of Ehud Kalai. Corresponding with his 65th birthday, the event was sponsored by the Center for the Study of Rationality at the Hebrew University. The James J. O'Connor Professor of Decision and Game Sciences and director of the Kellogg Center for Strategic Decision Making, Kalai was recognized by attendants, including Kellogg School colleagues Nabil Al-Najjar, Rakesh Vohra and Peter Klibanoff, as well as Asher Wolinsky, professor of economics at Northwestern University.

Harry G. Guthmann Professor of Finance Robert Korajczyk published "Pricing the Commonality Across Alternative Measures of Liquidity" (co-authored with Ronnie Sadka '03). The article appeared in the January issue of the Journal of Financial Economics.

The fall 2007 edition of Directors & Boards features a cover story interview with Harry M. Jansen Kraemer Jr., clinical professor of management and strategy.

Professor of Business Law Stephen B. Presser has submitted a manuscript for the second edition of his text An Introduction to the Law of Business Organizations (Thomson/West). It is the first casebook designed to be used by both law students and management school students.

Derek D. Rucker has published "When Increased Confidence Yields Increased Thought: A confidence-matching hypothesis" in the January edition of Journal of Experimental Social Psychology (co-authored with Zakary L. Tormala and Charles R. Seger). The research qualifies past findings between confidence and information processing by demonstrating that the depth of consumers' information processing is affected by the interaction between consumers' confidence and whether the message professes to provide confidence. Rucker, an assistant professor of marketing, also examines the role of power in persuasion in "The Effects of Message Recipients' Power Before and After Persuasion: A Self-Validation Analysis." Co-authored with Pablo Briņol, Richard E. Petty, Carmen Valle, and Alberto Becerra, it was published in the December Journal of Personality and Social Psychology.

Robert Schieffer, clinical associate professor of marketing, co-authored "Customers at the Core" with Eric Leininger in the January issue of Marketing Management, a publication of the American Marketing Association.
