Climent Quintana-Domeque, who is the College’s William R Miller Fellow and Tutor in Economics, is Guest Editor on the forthcoming special issue of Review of Economics of the Household, to be published in March. The special edition, entitled ‘Consumption, Poverty and Inequality in the Household’ is in honour of Nobel Laureate Angus Deaton.

“Angus has had a major influence on my research, and I have been very fortunate to have him as teacher, mentor and co-author,” writes Climent. “His contributions to economics range from theoretical insights and econometric contributions to policy relevant empirical findings. This special issue reflects how the work by Angus has been and continues to be a great source of inspiration for economic research, and in particular for the theoretical and empirical analysis of household behaviour.

“The wide range of topics and approaches covered by the articles in this special issue, from consumption to mortality and from purely empirical studies to purely theoretical ones, reflects Angus’ enormous influence, and I am sure the reader will enjoy reading these articles. The analysis of household behaviour is fundamental in our understanding of economics, both in developed and developing countries.”

The special issue will appear in March 2018, but Climent’s introduction, including further information about the articles, can be found here.
