NOBEL PRIZES IN ECONOMICS
Kieran Healy rightly celebrates the award of the economics Nobel to Daniel Kahnemann. He describes it as part of a trend toward giving the prize to somewhat non-mainstream figures, and proposes Albert Hirschman as a worthy candidate. I’d add Tibor Scitovsky to that list. And when are they finally going to get around to Tom Schelling?
Two readers point out what I should have known: Scitovsky died over the summer. That makes him eligible for canonization, but ineligible for the Nobel.
