Joshua Angrist is an Israeli-American economist born September 18, 1960 in Columbus, Ohio. He is professor of economics at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology. He specializes in labor economics and education economics. He is known in applied econometrics for his use of instrumental variables. With Jörn-Steffen Pischke, he published Mostly Harmless Econometrics, a textbook on applied econometrics. In educational economics, he is particularly famous for having conducted with Victor Lavy a study on the effect of class size on children's academic success using the regression on discontinuity method. The methodology of this study was widely adopted, in particular by Thomas Piketty who applied the same method to the French data. He is one of the three winners of the 2021 Nobel Prize in Economics along with Guido Imbens and David Card.
