At the annual congress of the Brazilian Economics Association on December 6-9th, 2005, Werner Baer received a formal prize of recognition " for his genuine contributions to the study of Brazil's economy, his activities in helping to place many Brazilian students in leading U. S. universities (including the University of Illinois) and for his contributions in helping many Brazilian universities in establishing graduate programs in Economics."

Werner gave the keynote speech at the congress and a reception followed, where he was congratulated by many of his former students.

Congratulations, Professor Baer!

Thanks to Larry Neal, for this bit of cheer!
