Elsevier congratulates Professor Christopher A. Sims and Professor Thomas J. Sargent

Christopher A. Sims and Thomas J. Sargent were jointly awarded the prize "for their empirical research on cause and effect in the macroeconomy". Independently conducted, their complementary research has been fundamental to policymakers’ and researchers’ understanding of the major short and long term aspects of macroeconomics. Sims has identified and analyzed the impact of unanticipated events on the economy, such as an increase in the price of oil. Sargent’s research analyzes the effects and consequences of changes in economic policy including GDP, inflation and investment.

As Harold H. Helm Professor of Economics and Banking at Princeton University, Christopher A. Sims is a contributing author to the Handbook of Monetary Economics, Vol 3A, and has published in Elsevier journals including the Journal of Econometrics, Carnegie-Rochester Conference Series on Public Policy (now published through the Journal of Monetary Economics), Journal of Economic Dynamics and Control, European Economic Review, and the Journal of Monetary Economics.

Thomas J. Sargent is the William R. Berkley Professor of Economics and Business at New York University and serves on the Editorial Advisory Board for the Review of Economic Dynamics. He is also a contributor to the Handbook of Monetary Economics Volume 3B and the Handbook of Computational Economics and has published frequently in a number of Elsevier journals: Journal of Economic Theory, Journal of Monetary Economics, Economics Letters, European Economic Review, Review of Economic Dynamics, Japan and the World Economy, Journal of Economic Dynamics and Control, Journal of Econometrics and the European Journal of Political Economy.
