About David Card

In 1995, Professor Card received the American Economic Association's John Bates Clark Prize, which is awarded every other year to the economist under 40 whose work is judged to have made the most significant contribution to the field. He was a co-recipient of the IZA Prize in Labor Economics in 2006, and was awarded the Frisch Medal by the Econometric Society in 2007.

"David Card is one of the preeminent economists of his generation. He has made fundamental contributions on various topics including the effects of the minimum wage on unemployment, the impact of immigration on labor market wages, as well as important contributions concerning education, job training and inequality. We are honored to have Professor Card visit Cornell."
