Yesterday, Joshua Angrist and Guido Imbens, whose most cited paper is this JASA 1996 article with Don Rubin, were awarded the Sveriges Riksbank Prize in Economic Sciences in Memory of Alfred Nobel for 2021.

I presume this will not see the number of Biometrika submissions involving causal inference go down! (Imbens wrote a book on causal inference with Don Rubin, and is currently editor of Econometrica. And Angrist wrote Mostly Harmless Econometrics, with J.S. Pischke, which I have not read.)

Along with the other introductory overview lectures in this edition of JSM:
