Angus Deaton

Angus Deaton has been awarded the Nobel Prize in Economics.

“To design economic policy that promotes welfare and reduces poverty, we must first understand individual consumption choices. More than anyone else, Angus Deaton has enhanced this understanding. By linking detailed individual choices and aggregate outcomes, his research has helped transform the fields of microeconomics, macroeconomics, and development economics.”

— Royal Swedish Academy of Sciences
