Armen Alchian Award

Armen Alchian Award

In 2014 AEA named the main annual award in honour of the 100th anniversary of one of the greatest Armenian economists of the XX century – Armen Alchian. Armen Alchian established UCLA tradition in Economics, wrote very few but extremely influential articles, wrote a university textbook that educated generations, saw many editions and are still currently in use by top universities, and was expected by many to win a Nobel Prize.

The Alchian Award comes in the form of a medal to be hung on the neck and has been designed by twin brother artists known under the unifying name Jevo (twins in the dialect of Gyumri). On the averse a characteristic portrait of Armen Alchian is presented.
