About Robert W. Fogel

Robert W. Fogel is widely recognized for his important contributions to economic science that further the understanding of long-term technological and institutional change. His early work focused on railroads and economic growth in American history. Since the late 1980s, Fogel’s principal research has focused on explaining the secular decline in mortality and the changing pattern of aging over the life cycle in the United States. In 1993, he was the recipient of Nobel Prize in Economics for “having renewed research in economic theory and quantitative methods in order to explain economic and institutional change.”
