The Nobel Prize in Economics: Behind the Aura

2018-10-09 3 Quarks Daily

The web magazine 3 Quarks Daily is publishing a text about The Nobel Factor, by Avner Offer and Gabriel Söderberg: "This rather local agenda, pressed by the influential economist Assar Lindbeck [...] was, the authors argue, crucial to explaining the pattern of awards. The authors go so far as to contrast Economics with Social Democracy, in the process identifying the discipline as a whole with its most market‐oriented strand."
