Awards in economics. Towards a new field of inquiry
Awards play a large role in the economics profession, which is documented by the large variety and number of awards. However, little scientific attention has been devoted to them. This paper documents the prevalence of awards in the economics profession and analyzes the number and type of awards received by the 1,200 leading economists included in Who’s Who in Economics. First steps towards integrating awards into economic theory are undertaken.
