British microeconomist Angus Deaton has won a Nobel Prize for his work studying consumption, poverty, and welfare.
The 69-year-old, from Edinburgh, is currently a Princeton professor and has been in the running for the prize in previous years.

Nobel peace prize winner Malala Yousafzai has dedicated her award to "voiceless" children around the world.
The teenager, who at 17 is the youngest person ever to receive the coveted prize, also called on the Indian and Pakistani prime ministers to attend the award ceremony for the sake of peace.
Malala hit headlines around the world after she survived being shot in the head by a Taliban fighter in October 2012 for going to school.
She later had treatment in Britain for her injuries and went on to make a full recovery.
Malala is now a dedicated campaigner for children's rights to education.
Malala Yousafzai has revealed that she was in an A-level chemistry class when she found out she had won the Nobel Peace Prize.
The Pakistani campaigner, 17, said she was "totally sure" she had not won the award, only for a teacher to appear with the good news.
Malala attends school in Edgbaston, Birmingham after recovering from being shot in the head by a Taliban gunman in 2012.
Malala Yousafzai will be remembered by historians as starting a "liberation movement" for boys and girls all over the world, Gordon Brown has said.
The former Prime Minister said Malala and Indian activist Kailash Satyarthi were "the greatest children's champions in the world" as well as "two of my great friends".
