May 4, 2023

Gabriel Zucman, a UC Berkeley economist, has won the prestigious John Bates Clark Medal for his influential research on tax avoidance and economic inequality. The medal is awarded annually by the American Economic Association to an economist under the age of 40, and several past winners have gone on to win the Nobel Prize in economics. Zucman’s innovative research and wide-ranging influence over the past decade were cited in the award, as was his “revolutionary” work on the drivers of wealth inequality and policies to reduce it.
