Nordhaus and Paul Romer, were awarded the Nobel Memorial Prize in Economic Sciences on Monday for their work in implementing climate change and technological innovation, respectively, into long-run macroeconomic analysis. The two economists have not worked together, but the Nobel committee said their achievements are similar because they each built valuable economic models to study global problems.
A reduced version of his undergraduate thesis research was published in the Review of Economics and Statistics. In he moved to University of California, Berkeley and was promoted to full professor in Research[ edit ] Romer's early research made him one of the leaders of the New Keynesian economics.
Specifically, an influential paper with Laurence Ball, published inestablished that real rigidities that is, stickiness in relative prices can exacerbate nominal rigidities that is, stickiness in nominal prices. The paper argues that the Solow growth modelonce augmented to Romer model a role for human capital, does a reasonably good job of explaining international differences in standards of living.
According to Google Scholarit has been cited more than 15, times, making it one of the most cited articles in the field of economics. In more recent work, Romer has worked with Christina Romer on fiscal and monetary policy from the s to the present, using notes from the meetings of the Federal Open Market Committee FOMC and the materials prepared by Fed staff to study how the Federal Reserve makes its decisions.
His work suggests that some of the credit for the relatively stable economic growth in the s should lie with good policy made by the Federal Reserve,  and that the members of the FOMC could at times have made better decisions by relying more closely on forecasts made by the Fed professional staff.
This work looks at the historical record of US tax changes from —, excluding "endogenous" tax changes made to fight recessions or offset the cost of new government spending.
It finds that such "exogenous" tax increases, made for example to reduce inherited budget deficits, reduce economic growth though by smaller amounts after than before. The results also indicate that the main effect of tax cuts on the government budget is to induce subsequent legislated tax increases.

Endogenous growth theory holds that investment in human capital, innovation, and knowledge are significant contributors to economic growth.
