Paul Samuelson Good Questions
Paul Anthony Samuelson (May 15, 1915–December 13, 2009) was an American economist, and the first American to win the Nobel Memorial Prize in Economic Sciences. The Swedish Royal Academies stated, when awarding the prize, that he
has done more than any other contemporary economist to raise the level of scientific analysis in economic theory. Economic historian Randall E. Parker calls him the
Father of Modern Economics, and The New York Times considered him to be the
foremost academic economist of the 20th century.
