Many candidates out there: Grew Mankiw's  favorites are Fama, Feldstein, or Barro. Thompson Scientific's  are Helpman, Grossman, Tirole, Wilson or Milgrom. Tylor Cowen  would give it to Krueger, Bhagwati and Tullock.
If you have your own favorite, you can bet one dollar  on him/her. A charity of your choice will get all the money collected (if you win).
