Over the past 26 Clark Medal winners, a total of nine received the Nobel Prize for economics, the ratio of up to 1 / 3. Not only that, as John Bates Clark Award presentation object is limited to the young economist, and Nobel Prize presentation often have a senior economist, therefore, in the previous 约翰贝茨克 Lack winner being awarded the Nobel Prize economist are only likely to come from the John Bates Clark Award winner early into. In fact, all nine John Bates Clark Award and Nobel Prize winners from 1983, double the previous 18 John Bates Clark award winner being. Or, before 1983, won the John Bates Clark Prize Nobel Prize as high as 1 / 2. Also worth mentioning is that, as John Bates Clark Award of the presentation object is also confined to the U.S. economist, is a coincidence that the first John Bates Clark Award winner Paul Samuelson has just won the Nobel Prize is the first American economist.
