The Sveriges Riksbank Prize in Economic Sciences in Memory of Alfred Nobel 2021 will be awarded to David Card (UC Berkeley) “for his empirical contributions to labor economics” as well as Joshua D. Angrist (MIT) and Guido W. Imbens (Stanford University) “for their methodological contributions to the analysis of causal relationships.”
“A very well deserved Prize,” said IZA Network Director Daniel Hamermesh. “Their work has affected and enhanced the thinking and research of all labor economists — and it has added to public interest in and understanding of labor issues.”
All three laureates have been IZA Research Fellows for many years. Card and Angrist joined IZA over 20 years ago and have been among the most active IZA Research Fellows ever since, submitting dozens of IZA Discussion Papers and participating in a number of IZA events. In November 2006, David Card was awarded the IZA Prize in Labor Economics jointly with Alan Krueger.
