CEPR congratulates Dave Donaldson, Associate Professor of Economics at Stanford University, on winning the John Bates-Clark Medal. The medal is awarded annually to the US-based economist under the age of forty who is adjudged to have made a significant contribution to economic thought and knowledge. Dave is a Research Fellow in CEPR’s Development Economics and International Trade programmes. Previous winners have included Esther Duflo, Paul Krugman, Larry Summers and Joseph Stiglitz.

To quote the prize committee, "he has not only established himself as a leader in the field, but he has also formed and become the principal practitioner of a distinctive style of research, based on important conceptual questions, careful data work and credible identification combined with state-of-the-art structural methods. Donaldson's research adds profound insight into classic and fundamental issues in international trade."
