October 8, 2018

NEW YORK--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Oct 8, 2018--New York University Stern School of Business congratulates Paul Romer, who was awarded today the 2018 Nobel Memorial Prize in Economics Sciences, an honor which he shares this year with William Nordhaus.

In awarding the prize to Paul Romer, the Swedish Academy cited his contributions “for integrating technological innovations into long-run macroeconomic analysis.”

Paul Romer, who is currently on leave from NYU, joined NYU Stern in 2010 and founded the NYU Stern Urbanization Project in 2011, conducting applied research on the many ways that policymakers in the developing world can use the growth of cities to create economic opportunity and pursue social reform. Paul Romer also directed NYU’s Marron Institute of Urban Management. The Marron Institute deepens the fundamental understanding of cities by working with civic innovators to improve urban management—making cities safer, healthier, and more mobile and inclusive.
