Bonn Graduate Philipp Strack wins Clark Medal

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.

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.
