Google got the economist, professor and author Sir W. Arthur Lewis on 10. December honored with a special doodle. In 1979, on that day, Lewis was jointly awarded the Nobel Prize in Economics for his pioneering work in modeling the economic forces that affect developing countries.
Sir W.. Arthur Lewis, a celebrated economist, was celebrated for his contributions to economic development. Born in 1915 in Castries on the Caribbean island of St. . Lucia, Lewis, initially aspired to be an engineer. However, he moved into the field of business because the governments and corporations of West India such as St. Lucia refused to hire black people.
Although exposed to racial discrimination, Lewis received a government scholarship in 1932 and began studying at the London School of Economics, where he eventually received a PhD in industrial economics.
Soon after, Lewis shifted his focus to world economic history and development. In 1954 he published his basic article economic development with unlimited labor.
Sir W.. Arthur Lewis was also the first black faculty member at the London School of Economics, the first black to hold a professorship at a UK university (at Manchester University), and the first black instructor to become a full professor at Princeton University.
