MSU professor receives award for book

Dale Belman, professor in the School of Labor and Industrial Relations, received the Bowen Award for most important public policy book of 2014 from the Industrial Relations Section at Princeton University. The Section is located in a Princeton University library and specializes in labor subjects, designed for the use of students, faculty, practitioners and researchers.

Co-authored by Paul Wolfson of Tuck School of Business, "What Does the Minimum Wage Do?" says the minimum wage, when used with other policies and programs, can improve the living standards of the working poor.

The Bowen Award is presented in recognition of William G. Bowen, former president of Princeton University, for his contribution to the fields of labor economics, industrial relations, human resources and long association with the Industrial Relations Section.
