As some of you might know (and many more probably don’t) at on Monday at 9am Stockholm time the Swedish Royal Academy of Sciences will be announcing the winner of the “2015 Sveriges Riksbank Prize in Economic Sciences in Memory of Alfred Nobel” (or in short the Nobel Prize in Economics).
There’s a long list of contenders for the prize and this article gives a good rundown of who’s who and their chances. Our outgoing VP-Internal Kai Zen has his money on William Nordhaus as a likely candidate for his work in environmental economics. Personally, I think Paul Romer has a strong chance this year, especially given it’s the 25th anniversary of his model’s introduction. We’ll know soon enough.
