Faculty of Economics


It is with great sadness that I write to say that Professor Sir James Mirrlees has passed away. Jim died at his home in Cambridge.

Jim is widely known as the author of some of the most luminous and influential papers in modern economics. He was awarded a Nobel Prize for his work in public economics in 1996. But over and above his great intellectual achievement, Jim was widely respected and held in great affection for his generosity in encouraging and supporting economists from all over the world.
