Raghuram Rajan’s Name in Clarivate List of Nobel Prize Worthies
The economics prize will be announced in Stockholm on Monday, 9 October.
Former Reserve Bank of India (RBI) governor Raghuram Rajan's name figures in this year’s list of possible winners of the Nobel Prize for Economics brought out by Clarivate Analytics.
The award will be announced in Stockholm on Monday, 9 October, according to Nobelprize.org.
Clarivate Analytics, earlier a Thomson Reuters unit, publishes a list of possible Nobel Prize winners based on research citations, ahead of the formal announcement by the Nobel committee.
Rajan is currently the Katherine Dusak Miller Distinguished Service professor of finance at the Booth School of Business, University of Chicago.
Giving the list of six possible candidates for the economics Nobel, Clarivate said these were citation laureates – standouts whose research is clearly "of Nobel class" according to its significance and utility, as attested by markedly high citation tallies recorded in the Web of Science.
According to information available on Clarivate's website, in the last 15 years, 45 of the selected researchers had gone on to receive a Nobel – nine in the same year in which they were tipped by Clarivate and 18 within two years of the distinction.
