          Some news: I have informed Princeton that I will be retiring at the end of next academic year, that is, in June 2015. In August 2015 I will join the faculty of the Graduate Center, City University of New York, as a professor in the Ph.D. program in economics. I will also become a distinguished scholar at the Graduate Center’s Luxembourg Income Study Center. You can read all about it in the Graduate Center’s announcement.

          So, why am I doing this? It is in no sense a commentary on Princeton, which has been a wonderful place for me professionally and personally.

          Instead, my move reflects some hard thinking about how I can best make use of my time.

          more and more of my work has focused on issues of income inequality, and nobody does more important work producing the hard data on which all of this work relies than the Luxembourg Income Study, directed by Janet Gornick, professor of political science and sociology at the Graduate Center of CUNY. So I approached Janet about the possibility of some kind of affiliation with LIS that would give me both an office and the ability to interact with the excellent group LIS has assembled in New York.

          That is indeed going to happen, but to my surprise the Graduate Center offered me a faculty position as well, which I quickly realized would be a wonderful thing. The Graduate Center is a remarkable locus of public affairs-oriented scholarship, and is in the process of assembling an incredible team associated with LIS. I couldn’t imagine a better place for me at this point; I also, to be honest, like the idea of being associated with a great public university.

          Changes
