Jan Tinbergen (The Hague, April 12, 1903June 9, 1994), Dutch economist, was awarded the first Nobel Memorial Prize in Economics in 1969, which he shared with Ragnar Frisch for having developed and applied dynamic models for the analysis of economic processes.

Tinbergen developed the first national comprehensive macroeconomic model, which he first built for the Netherlands and later applied to the United States and the United Kingdom after World War II.

His younger brothers Nikolaas and Luuk were important ornithologists, and Nikolaas won the Nobel Prize in Physiology or Medicine. Tinbergen founded the Econometric Institute in the Erasmus Universiteit Rotterdam.

Tinbergen's work was later built on by Lawrence Klein, contributing to another Nobel Prize.
