The Search for Truth: In Appreciation of James J. Heckman

  • John J. Donohue

Extract

On behalf of all economists who analyze micro-economic data and use micro-econometrics to unite evidence and theory, and to evaluate policy interventions of all kinds, I accept my portion of the Bank of Sweden Prize in Economic Sciences in memory of Alfred Nobel for the year 2000.

—James J. Heckman, Dec. 8, 2000
