After the news of veteran economist and Nobel prize winner Amartya Sen’s death surfaced, his daughter Nandana Deb Sen denied the reports. Taking to X, Nandana said, "Friends, thanks for your concern but it’s fake news: Baba is totally fine. We just spent a wonderful week together w/ family in Cambridge—his hug as strong as always last night when we said bye! He is teaching 2 courses a week at Harvard, working on his gender book—busy as ever!" (SIC).

How fake news of Sen's death surfaced? 

The news about Sen’s death started circulating after American economic historian Claudia Goldin, who won the 2023 Nobel Prize in Economics, took to 'X' to announce his death. "A terrible news. My dearest Professor Amartya Sen has died minutes ago. No words," Goldin stated, which subsequently turned out to be fake. 

Earlier on October 9, Goldin was awarded with the Nobel Prize for her work in advancing the understanding of "women’s labour market outcomes”. She is an economics professor at Harvard University and is the third woman to win the highly-coveted award. Goldin is the second woman Nobel laureate in economics.
