Professor Fields was awarded the 2014 IZA Prize in Labor Economics, the most prestigious science award in the field, for his outstanding contributions on the importance of efficient labour markets to fight poverty and foster economic development in low- and middle-income countries and by pioneering economic thinking about labour markets in developing countries by focusing on indicators such as poverty, inequality and income mobility.
