Harvard’s Roland Fryer Wins John Bates Clark Medal

The American Economic Association has announced the awarding of the John Bates Clark Medal to Roland Fryer. The medal is given to who the AEA deems is the most promising American economist under 40 years old.

According to the AEA:
Fryer is the leading economist working on the economics of race and education, and he has produced the most important work in recent years on combating the racial divide, one of America’s most profound and long-lasting social problems.
I await the take of Thomas Sowell on this, author of:

Race And Culture: A World View
Inside American Education
Race and Economics
Black Education: Myths and Tragedies
Race, Culture, and Equality
Intellectuals and Race

who some might consider having a passing familiarity with the topics being investigated by this just revealed leading economist.

  1. I can always tell somebody with a political agenda when they dress up their sociology as economics.
