Overview

What is he best known for?

The fields of study he is best known for:

  • Microeconomics
  • Macroeconomics
  • Finance

Debraj Ray mainly focuses on Mathematical economics, Microeconomics, Polarization, Econometrics and Stochastic game. Mathematical economics is frequently linked to Characteristic function in his study. The Microeconomics study combines topics in areas such as Characterization and Discounting.

His Polarization study combines topics from a wide range of disciplines, such as Ethnic conflict and Ethnic history. Debraj Ray focuses mostly in the field of Econometrics, narrowing it down to matters related to Income distribution and, in some cases, Public finance and International economics. The study incorporates disciplines such as Outcome, Participation constraint and Set in addition to Transferable utility.

His most cited work include:

  • ON THE MEASUREMENT OF POLARIZATION (1146 citations)
  • Inequality as a Determinant of Malnutrition and Unemployment: Policy (434 citations)
  • Conflict and Distribution (390 citations)

What are the main themes of his work throughout his whole career to date?

His primary areas of investigation include Mathematical economics, Microeconomics, Labour economics, Stochastic game and Developing country. Mathematical economics and Characteristic function are commonly linked in his work. His Microeconomics research is multidisciplinary, relying on both Consumption and Welfare.

His research in Labour economics intersects with topics in Asset, General equilibrium theory, Human capital, Distribution and Unemployment. The concepts of his Stochastic game study are interwoven with issues in Nash equilibrium and Principal. He combines subjects such as Developed country, Demography and Demographic economics with his study of Developing country.

He most often published in these fields:

  • Mathematical economics (38.38%)
  • Microeconomics (25.25%)
  • Labour economics (19.19%)

What were the highlights of his more recent work (between 2013-2021)?

  • Mathematical economics (38.38%)
  • Developing country (13.13%)
  • Distribution (9.76%)

In recent papers he was focusing on the following fields of study:

His scientific interests lie mostly in Mathematical economics, Developing country, Distribution, Baseline and Labour economics. Debraj Ray is studying Nash equilibrium, which is a component of Mathematical economics. His biological study spans a wide range of topics, including Developed country, Demography and Development economics.

His research on Distribution also deals with topics like

  • Investment together with Convergence, Social determinants of health and Affect,
  • Standard of living which connect with Capital. His research investigates the connection between Labour economics and topics such as Production that intersect with problems in Real wages, Human capital, Measures of national income and output and Physical capital. His work carried out in the field of Wage brings together such families of science as Incentive, Productivity, Accounts payable and Operations management.

Between 2013 and 2021, his most popular works were:

  • Implications of an Economic Theory of Conflict: Hindu-Muslim Violence in India (83 citations)
  • Poverty and Self‐Control (66 citations)
  • Aspirations and Inequality (62 citations)

In his most recent research, the most cited papers focused on:

  • Microeconomics
  • Macroeconomics
  • Finance

Debraj Ray mostly deals with Distribution, Labour economics, Developing country, Development economics and Social conflict. His Distribution research includes themes of Standard of living and Investment. Debraj Ray interconnects Capital and Demographic economics in the investigation of issues within Investment.

Debraj Ray has included themes like Incentive, Economic mobility and Income distribution in his Labour economics study. His Development economics research incorporates a variety of disciplines, including Unrest, Conflict theories, Cultural conflict and Hinduism.
