There is no Nobel prize in economics!
According to nobelprize.org, there is. Unless you are quibbling about 'Economics' vs 'Economic Sciences'. Were you?

Nobel Prize facts

Or are you going with that Economics was not one of Nobel's original prize areas and was added by the Nobel committee in memory of him. A somewhat subtle point, that does not really bear on the original comment about looking to experts for advice.

Would be a surprise to the 2019 winners.

14 October 2019

The Royal Swedish Academy of Sciences has decided to award the Sveriges Riksbank Prize in Economic Sciences in Memory of Alfred Nobel 2019 to

Abhijit Banerjee
Massachusetts Institute of Technology, Cambridge, USA

Esther Duflo
Massachusetts Institute of Technology, Cambridge, USA

Michael Kremer
Harvard University, Cambridge, USA

“for their experimental approach to alleviating global poverty

Unless you are making an argument between the formal name of economic sciences vs economics.

Yes, it's not a real Nobel prize, its the national bank of Sweden who give out that prize in memory of Alfred Nobel.

The Nobel prizes was instigated by Alfred Nobel himself, the "Sveriges Riksbanks pris i ekonomisk vetenskap till Alfred Nobels minne" is just a trademark infringement on the real Nobel prizees.

No, I make the argument that "Riksbankens pris" is not the same as "Nobelpris" or if you like it translated "Swedish national bank" is not the same as "Alfred Nobel"

Criticizing someone for not knowing the alleged difference between the Nobel Prize and the Nobel Memorial Prize is not unlike nitpicking at Alec’s perceived inaccuracies in describing the long hose setup.

Scuba Board at its classic best.... :clapping:


Hitch up the horse...watch where you step...mount the buggy...give the whip a quick snap...and return to the farm...smell the fresh bread baking...

Don't be too hard on Alec...he just likes ''old''...he does after-like your Kraken...
