Who will win the Nobel in Economics?

Ignacio Hernandez's picture

The winner will be announced on Monday.


Many candidates out there: Grew Mankiw's favorites are Fama, Feldstein, or Barro. Thompson Scientific's are Helpman, Grossman, Tirole, Wilson or Milgrom. Tylor Cowen would give it to Krueger, Bhagwati and Tullock.


If you have your own favorite, you can bet one dollar on him/her. A charity of your choice will get all the money collected (if you win).


Paul Krugman's grey cat has already won a Nobel, and she was not even a favorite. Will the owner do as much?


I dont think it matters who wins the prize. The real question is what does the winner intend to do with their fame to help humanitarian plights.
