Gordon Hanson

One of the most productive and highly cited economists in the United States, Hanson is considered one of a handful of superstars in the field of international economics. A pioneer in developing “the new empirical economics,” he is an authority on international trade, international migration, economic development and foreign investment, applying economic analysis to understanding the social implications of timely issues. Hanson is committed to the dissemination of his findings to policy makers and the global community, according to the awards committee.
“Professor Hanson is one of his generation’s pioneers who have combined very original ways of investigating problems empirically with astute innovations in theorizing,” said Peter Cowhey, dean of the School of International Relations and Pacific Studies. “His recent work will stand among the most important contributions to the field of international economics and migration.”
