The Clark Medal


The Clark Medal

An informal name for the John Bates Clark Medal, which is a prize awarded annually by the American Economic Association to an economist working in the United States who is younger than 40 years old and has contributed outstanding research to the field of economics. The Clark Medal is one of the most prestigious awards in the field, and many John Bates Clark Medal winners have gone on to win the Nobel prize in economics.

Unlike the Nobel prize, however, the medal is never awarded to more than one economist in the same year.
