SSE and the Nobel Prize
Stockholm School of Economics has uniquely close ties to the Prize in Economics Sciences in Memory of Alfred Nobel. Two of our professors currently serve on the Committee for the Prize in Economic Sciences, each year’s laureate visits our school every December, and our students arrange the annual Nobel Nightcap every four years.
The Royal Swedish Academy of Sciences has decided to award the Sveriges Riksbank Prize in Economic Sciences in Memory of Alfred Nobel 2018 to William D. Nordhaus, Yale University, New Haven, USA and Paul M. Romer, NYU Stern School of Business, New York, USA.
William D. Nordhaus and Paul M. Romer have designed methods for addressing some of our time’s most basic and pressing questions about how we create long-term sustained and sustainable economic growth.
