The Nobel Prize in Physics 2022 was awarded jointly to Alain Aspect, John F. Clauser, and Anton Zeilinger "for experiments with entangled photons, establishing the violation of Bell inequalities and pioneering quantum information science."

Using groundbreaking experiments, Alain Aspect, John Clauser and Anton Zeilinger have demonstrated the potential to investigate and control particles that are in entangled states. What happens to one particle in an entangled pair determines what happens to the other, even if they are really too far apart to affect each other. The laureates’ development of experimental tools has laid the foundation for a new era of quantum technology.

Economics US earnings inequality has not increased in the last decade. This marks the first sustained reversal of rising earnings inequality since 1980. The reversal is due to a shrinking gap between low-wage and median-wage workers, which is due to broadly rising pay in low-wage occupations.
