Nobel de Economía 2015 – Angus Deaton

Una buena reseña del escocés Angus Deaton, nobel de economía 2015, «for his analysis of consumption, poverty, and welfare».

xxx I’ll be updating the relevant posts throughout the morning, so hit refresh in your browser to read more. The first versions of those posts will have much less than what is to follow.

The work for which Deaton is now being honored revolves around three central questions:

  • How do consumers distribute their spending among different goods?
  • How much of society’s income is spent and how much is saved?
  • How do we best measure and analyze welfare and poverty?
