“I’m incredibly honoured to be recognised by my peers in this way”, said Professor Baldwin. “I’m especially pleased that the International Economic Association really is global, and that it recognises my ‘lifetime’s work’”.
The title of Schumpeter-Haberler Distinguished Fellow is conferred to economists who have made outstanding contributions to the discipline, especially in the area of international economic development and its practice around the world.
Professor Baldwin added that “Gottfried Haberler was my father's PhD thesis supervisor, so the name Haberler has been in my ear since my earliest days. This makes the prize really special for me”.
He was bestowed the title along with Esther Duflo, Gita Gopinath, Amartya Sen and Guido Tabellini.
