Wolfers picked for IMF "25 Brightest Young Economists" list

September 10, 2014

What does Justin Wolfers have in common with Esther Duflo, Roland Fryer, and Thomas Piketty?

All just made the International Monetary Fund’s “25 Brightest Young Economists” list, published in the August 27 issue of IMF’s Finance and Development magazine under the title, “Generation Next.”

Billed as, “25 economists under 45 who are shaping the way we think about the global economy,” the list is a who’s who of path-setting young economists to keep an eye on.

Justin Wolfers is a professor of public policy and economics at the University of Michigan and a senior fellow at the Peterson Institute for International Economics.
