Found on a blackboard at the University of Chicago
I found this list of what is supposed to be the future winners of the Nobel Prize in Economics on a blackboard at the U of C, for what it is worth. Who knows whether the people who made the list know what they are talking about. There are about 40 people on the list, and about 2 people get it per year. So if it is accurate, it would cover the next 20 years of winners.
Picking Nobel prize winners is a notoriously difficult task. My guess is that more than half of the winners over the next 20 years are on this list, but no doubt some strong contenders were left off. As evidence of this, less than half of Matt Kahn’s thoughtful predictions at MarginalRevolution made this list.
Anyway, here is the list, which I put into alphabetical order:
If you believe your name (or someone else’s) deserves to be on it let me know and we can start a new list.
