Three New York University faculty have been named to Foreign Policy’s “Top 100 Public Intellectuals” list, the magazine announced in its May/June 2008 issue: William Easterly, a professor in the Department of Economics; historian Tony Judt, who directs NYU’s Remarque Institute; and economist Nouriel Roubini, a professor in NYU’s Stern School of Business.

The selection process for the list was based on the following criteria: candidates must be living and still active in public life, and they must have shown distinction in their particular field as well as an ability to influence wider debate, often far beyond the borders of their own country. Others selected include: Pope Benedict XVI; chess master and democracy activist Garry Kasparov; General David Petraeus, the commander of U.S. forces in Iraq; and journalist Samantha Power. Foreign Policy (www.foreignpolicy.com) is published by the Carnegie Endowment for International Peace.

Easterly, who also has an appointment with NYU’s Africa House, is the author of The White Man’s Burden: Why the West’s Efforts to Aid the Rest Have Done So Much Ill and So Little Good 500
