Nobel prize in Economics

The Sveriges Riksbank Prize in Economic Sciences in Memory of Alfred Nobel, commonly known as the Nobel Prize in Economics, has been awarded since 1969. It was established by the Swedish central bank in commemoration of its 300th anniversary. Although it was not mentioned in Alfred Nobel’s will and is not technically a Nobel Prize, it is commonly referred to as such. The decision is made by the Royal Swedish Academy of Sciences, similarly to the Nobel Prizes in Chemistry and Physics, and it is presented alongside the other scientific awards.
