Mogstad: 2017 IZA Young Labor Economist Award


The Department of Economics congratulates Magne Mogstad, the Gary S. Becker Professor in Economics and the College, on receiving the 2017 IZA Young Labor Economist Award. The IZA bestows this honor once every two years to an aspiring labor market researcher below age 45 to support and stimulate top research. According to IZA Network Director Daniel S. Hamermesh, Professor at Royal Holloway University of London and Editor-in-Chief of IZA World of Labor, the award is a "modest recognition of the remarkable amount that [Mogstad has] already achieved."
