David Card, Joshua D. Angrist and Guido W. Imbens awarded the Prize in Economic Sciences for 2021

News The Royal Swedish Academy of Sciences has decided to award the Sveriges Riksbank Prize in Economic Sciences in Memory of Alfred Nobel for 2021 (the Nobel Prize in Economics) to David Card for his empirical contributions to labour economics and to Joshua D. Angrist and Guido W. Imbens for their methodological contributions to the analysis of causal relationships.

The Riksbank founded the Nobel Prize in Economics with the assistance of a donation in conjunction with the Bank’s 300th anniversary in 1968. With this donation, the Riksbank undertook to award prize money every year in an amount equivalent to that awarded for the other Nobel Prizes. The laureates, however, are appointed by the Royal Swedish Academy of Sciences.

The prize was awarded for the first time in 1969 and is awarded, every year, to a person or persons who have produced work of outstanding importance in the field of economic sciences.

At 6.00 PM tonight watch a panel discussion about this years winners of the Economics prize here: https://www.facebook.com/events/187295493511362

Deputy Governor Per Jansson among others will be contributing to the discussion which is also available after the LIVE-event is over..
