The Council for the Lindau Nobel Laureate Meetings and the Foundation Lindau Nobel Laureate Meetings deeply mourn the loss of Robert A. Mundell, who was awarded with the 1999 Sveriges Riksbank Prize in Economic Sciences in Memory of Alfred Nobel “for his analysis of monetary and fiscal policy under different exchange rate regimes and his analysis of optimum currency areas”. His work has inspired generations of researchers and dominates fiscal policy in open economies.
Robert A. Mundell participated in the 1st Lindau Meeting on Economic Sciences 2004. He also attended three other Meetings in 2006, 2008 and 2011.
The Council and Foundation extend their deep sympathies to his whole family.
