You read it here first

A few weeks back there was an excellent briefing in The Economist on the international bright young things of economics. Having finally made the time to read it, I was pleased to see that Undercover Economist readers will have recognised many of the names.

So here is the the roll of honour from the Economist, with links to my interpretations of their work:

Jesse Shapiro; Roland Fryer; Esther Duflo (and here, and here); Raj Chetty; and Xavier Gabaix. Apologies to have thus far passed over Marc Melitz, Ivan Werning and Amy Finkelstein.
