In Honor of Paul Krugman: Winner of the John Bates Clark Medal
Dixit, Avinash. 1993. "In Honor of Paul Krugman: Winner of the John Bates Clark Medal." Journal of Economic Perspectives, 7(2): 173-188.
Paul Krugman is the winner of the 1991 John Bates Clark Medal, given every two years to "that American economist under forty who is adjudged to have made a significant contribution to economic thought and knowledge." I shall attempt to convey a flavor of Krugman's research contributions, grouped into some major themes: product diversity and monopolistically competitive trade; oligopoly and strategic trade policy; the dynamics of trade and exchange rates; and much more. Finally I discuss his brilliant popular book, The Age of Diminished Expectations (1991).
