  • Three US-based economists were awarded the Nobel Prize in Economics in 2021 for pioneering research on the labor-market effects of minimum wage, immigration, and education, as well as for developing the scientific framework that allows conclusions to be drawn from such studies that cannot be conducted using traditional methodology.
  • One-half of the prize was awarded to Canadian-born David Card of the University of California, Berkeley, while the other half was shared by Joshua Angrist of the Massachusetts Institute of Technology and Dutch-born Guido Imbens, 58, of Stanford University.
