Famous Alias: John Bates Clark

John Bates Clark is a very famous economist and there is a ward name after him: John Bates Clark medal.

I didn't know this guy before I get singed for this person, but I know the news of 2014 winner of JBC medal, Matthew Gentzkow. And then I look over the website to get information of this master. To my surprise, he was the professor of Columbia University, which is my dream school. He was the "logo man" of capital system.
Here is his photo

  1. The Clark Medal may is indeed an important award. It may be more important than the Nobel because it is more reflective of recent research and therefore may give a good idea of where the economics profession will be heading.
