A distinguished visiting fellow at the Hoover Institution and the Allan H. Meltzer University Professor of Political Economy at the Tepper School of Business at Carnegie Mellon University, Professor Meltzer has been awarded the Truman Medal for Economic Policy. Established in 2005, the medal recognizes economists who have made extraordinary contributions to the formation of economic policy. The award went to Alan Greenspan in 2005, George P. Shultz in 2007, and Paul Volker in 2009. The Truman Medal honors Meltzers pioneering academic work in monetary policy, political theory, and economic history; his many practical contributions to improved economic policy; and his unswerving devotion to capitalism and individual liberty.
Dr. Meltzers Athenaeum lecture is sponsored by the Dean of the Faculty at Claremont McKenna College.
