The Price in Economic Sciences in Memory of Alfred Nobel - 1969-1998
AbstractIn conjunction with its tercentenary celebrations in 1968, Sveriges Riksbank (Bank of Sweden) instituted a new award, "The Central Bank of Sweden price in Economic Sciences in Memory of Alfred Nobel" on the basis of an economic commitment by the bank in perpetuity. Which criteria have guided the awards so far? And what have been the main problems when selecting the laureates? It is useful to start a discussion of these issues with a rough classification of the various types of economics prize awards given so far. Then it may be also useful to determine the main problems and difficulties in choosing laureates.
