Health economist Amy Finkelstein is this year’s recipient of the John Bates Clark medal. Sarah Kliff delivers the story here. Read Tyler Cowen’s reaction here, which points to the American Economics Association’s summary of Finkelstein’s work (pdf). Given the importance of health care in our economy and the quality of her work in health economics, Finkelstein is a superb choice this year. Congratulations!
