I'm rooting for Wooldridge, and Wooldridge alone. His textbook was my metrics bible for such a long time

Is it possible for Woolridge to win all by himself. Heck, is it even possible for the Nobel to go to one person only?No idea if econometrics will ever return to have a Nobel, but if I had to think:

Arellano - Blundell - Bond (for dynamic panel data contributions)

Bresnahan - Berry - Pakes (for empirical IO contributions that are now being increasingly used in other disciplines)

Perron - Phillips (for time series contributions)

Angrist - Card - Imbens (for pioneering work in the credibility revolution)

Rust - Wolpin (for the estimation of dynamic structural models of discrete choice)

I don't know where to categorize Wooldridge here.

Literally 3 people have won it alone in the last decade; Thaler (2017), Deaton (2015), and Tirole (2014).
