Nobel in Economics

leave a comment »

…was awarded today to Finn E. Kydland and Edward C. Prescott.

The Economic Nobel is technically called the ‘The Bank of Sweden Prize in Economic Sciences in Memory of Alfred Nobel’ .

Alfred Nobel in his will did not specify a prize for Economics in his bequest. It was instituted by the Bank of Sweden at its 300th anniversary. Apparently the Nobel family is contesting the use of the word “Nobel Prize” for this award. Fair enough.

Now read this article in the TOI.

Seems like people back home have too much time on their hands !
