STOCKHOLM (AP) — A U.S.-based economist has won the Nobel prize for economics for pioneering research that showed an increase in minimum wage doesn’t lead to less hiring and immigrants don’t lower pay for native-born workers, challenging commonly held ideas. Two others in the U.S. shared the award Monday for creating a way to study these types of social issues.

The Royal Swedish Academy of Sciences said the three have “completely reshaped empirical work in the economic sciences.”
