Guido Tabellini, a former PhD student and faculty member at UCLA, receives the 2022 Frontiers of Knowledge Award in Economics, Finance and Management
The 2022 Frontiers of Knowledge Award was awarded to Guido Tabellini, a former PhD student and faculty member of the UCLA economics department, for transforming political economy into a modern, empirical, interdisciplinary science. The award was shared with Timothy Besley and Torsten Persson. The three awardees, together with the late Alberto Alesina, have employed both theoretical and empirical tools to examine “how political institutions and processes shape economic policies and outcomes on one hand, and how economic factors shape political institutions on the other,” contributing decisively to shape the field of modern political economy.
