An Award Even Gary Becker Doesn’t Have

Hats off to economist Roland Fryer, Joel Klein, the rest of the folks in the New York City Department of Education, and Droga5 for taking home the Titanium Lion prize at the Cannes Lions advertising festival for their work on “Million.”

Million is the innovative NYC schools program that puts a specially designed cellphone into the hands of every NYC public school student.

I thought Becker had won every prize an economist could win, but now I realize he still has some work left to do.
