April 25, 2024

The Econometric Society announced that it has awarded the 2024 Frisch Medal to Dennis Egger, Johannes Haushofer, Edward Miguel, Paul Niehaus and Michael Walker for their paper, “General equilibrium effects of cash transfers: experimental evidence from Kenya” which was published in Econometrica in November 2022. Johannes Haushofer is Goh Keng Swee Professor of Economics at National University of Singapore.

The Frisch Medal is awarded once every two years for empirical or theoretical applied research published in Econometrica during the past five years. Johannes joins the ranks of, among others, five Nobel prize winners, including Angus Deaton and David Card.

The award is named in honour of Ragnar Frisch, a winner of the Nobel prize in economics and editor of Econometrica from 1933 to 1954.
