Quote:During his first year teaching and living at Harvard University, Guido Imbens spent his Saturday mornings with his colleague Joshua Angrist at the university housing laundromat, and during the spin cycle, the pair would discuss work and ponder questions about the world. Memories of those leisurely weekend conversations, nearly three decades ago now, flooded back to Imbens today upon learning that both he and Angrist have been awarded the 2021 Nobel Prize in Economic Sciences for work they conducted together.

“We were talking about ideas and thinking about open questions and it’s just kind of amazing to think that that work just very directly … it’s essentially where we figured out the main ideas that are the basis for this prize,” said Imbens.

Nobels 2021: Cal 4 Stanford 1


RE: This year's Nobels - BostonCard - 10-11-2021

Aside from Card, MacMillan (whose Nobel work in chemistry was after he left Berkeley), and Julius (another one whose work, in physiology and medicine, was after he left Berkeley), who is the fourth?  Note, I wouldn't begrudge Cal claiming MacMillan or Julius, though.
