The Prize honors Blundell’s path-breaking contributions to the econometric analysis of labor markets and public policy reforms.

According to the Award Statement, “Professor Blundell has played a major role in the development of modern labor and policy analysis. His work is characterized by a focus on pressing questions in economic policy, the development of cutting-edge econometric methods to tackle such questions, and painstaking analysis of micro data. Blundell’s contributions laid the foundations for the modern economic analysis of labor supply, consumer behavior, and policy reforms.”

Now the relevant articles of Sir Richard Blundell on the topic are collected in a fine selection defining the field.
