American Nobel Economists

Awarded for the first time in 1969, the Nobel Memorial Prize in Economic Science is the Johnny-come-lately Nobel Prize. Since its beginnings, the prize category has been heavily dominated by Americans or by foreign scholars working in the U.S., including, in 1994, John Nash.
