nominee, jfw award for dutch-iest citation ever

From Pricing the Priceless, page 160:
"A variety of an outlier scheme is the ceding ex ante of expected high-cost patients to a common pool (van Barneveld, van Vliet, and van de Ven 1986)."

For a moment I thought you were linking to Viviana Zelizer's Pricing the Priceless Child and wondered why you had left out the last word of the title. Then I read the sentence and realized that was probably not the case.

No, it's a book about Medicare reimbursement pricing.

almost as good as:

D. A. COX and S. ZUCKER, Intersection numbers of sections of elliptic surfaces, Invent. Math., 53 (1979), 1-44.

This reader will be soooo happy when you start posting your own breakthroughs. Not awarding citations. Jeez.

I've not really thought of this blog as a venue for breakthroughs, but perhaps I should.
