Today William D Nordhaus and Paul Romer were announced as joint winners of the Noble Prize for Economic Science. Yes, science! Neither would qualify for the profession's newest award, to be launched next year, simultaneous to the Noble award ceremony.

Steve suggests Ben Bernanke would be a notable contender as well as, of course, Milton Friedman.
