It has been announced that Angus Deaton, Dwight D. Eisenhower Professor at Princeton University, has been awarded the Sveriges Riksbank Prize in Economic Sciences in Memory of Alfred Nobel 2015. Citing his outstanding "analysis of consumption, poverty, and welfare", the Royal Swedish Academy of Sciences went on to say of Professor Deaton's outstanding contribution and advancement to the field of 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."
