Branko Milanovic

What was the nature of their innovation and how did it contribute to humankind? Branko Milanovic is a leading scholar on income distribution and inequality. He has built a major database on global inequality that is highly valuable to academics, policymakers, NGOs, and others. He has studied inequality, in individual countries and globally, as well as historically, among pre-industrial societies. He is widely known for his "elephant" curve that shows that those around the 70th-90th percentile global income, roughly corresponding to lower earners in the developed world, have missed out on real income growth over that last 20 years. His recent books include Haves and the Have-Nots: A Brief and Idiosyncratic History of Global Inequality, and Global inequality: A New Approach for the Age of Globalization. Branko has also worked as a lead economist in the World Bank’s research department, where he produced over forty papers on poverty and inequality. Already a recipient of the Leontief Prize for Advancing the Frontiers of Economic Thought, it would be appropriate to honor him with a ‘Not the Nobel Award’
