Bonn Graduate Philipp Strack wins Clark Medal

The economist Philipp Strack, who received his diploma from the University of Bonn and his doctorate from the Bonn Graduate School of Economics, has been awarded the John Bates Clark Medal by the American Economic Association. The Clark Medal awards American economists under the age of forty who have made a significant contribution to economic thought and knowledge. It is widely regarded as one of the most prestigious awards in the field of economics and is second only to the Nobel Prize in Economic Sciences. Many of the winners have gone on to receive the Nobel Prize later in their careers. Although the Clark Medal is advertised as a prize for US-American economists, it is sufficient for candidates to be working in the USA at the time of the award; US-American citizenship is not required for consideration.
