Exp. Ben Bernanke, Douglas Diamond, Philip Dybvig won Nobel Prize 2022 in Economics

Ben S. Bernanke (USA), Douglas W. Diamond (USA), and Philip H. Dybvig (USA) have won the Nobel Prize 2022 in Economics for research on banks and financial crises.

The three laureates have significantly improved our understanding of the role of banks in the economy, particularly during financial crises, and an important finding in their research is why avoiding bank collapses is vital.

Modern banking research clarifies why we have banks, how to make them less vulnerable in crises and how bank collapses exacerbate financial crises. The foundations of this research were laid by Ben Bernanke, Douglas Diamond, and Philip Dybvig in the early 1980s.

The 2021 Economic Nobel was given to David Card, Joshua D Angrist, Guido W Imbens. While one-half of the prize was given to David Card for his empirical contributions to labour economics, the other half was given jointly to Joshua D. Angrist and Guido W. Imbens for their methodological contributions to the analysis of causal relationships.
