nobel-prize-economics

The Sveriges Riksbank Prize in Economic Sciences in Memory of Alfred Nobel is the the most prestigious award in the field of economics. Although it was not one of the prizes established in Alfred Nobel’s will, it was established in 1968 by a donation from the Swedish National Bank and continues from this endowment. Laureates are selected by the Royal Swedish Academy of Sciences “in accordance with the rules governing the award of the Nobel Prizes instituted through Alfred Nobel’s will, which stipulate that the prize be awarded annually to “those who … shall have conferred the greatest benefit on mankind.”
