Angus Deaton
The Nobel Prize in Economic Sciences 2015 has been awarded to Angus Deaton of Princeton University, New Jersey, USA. Mr Deaton won the prestigious award for his analysis of consumption, poverty and welfare. The economics award officially known as the Bank of Sweden Prize in Economic Sciences in memory of Alfred Nobel wasn’t created by Nobel, but by Sweden’s central bank in 1968. Though it’s handed out along with the other prizes and the criteria for selecting winners are the same, it’s not a Nobel Prize in the same sense.
