The Sveriges Riksbank Prize in Economic Sciences in Memory of Alfred Nobel
Sveriges Riksbank’s Prize in Economic Sciences in Memory of Alfred Nobel was established in connection with the Riksbank’s 300th anniversary in 1968. The prize is awarded every year to a person or persons in the field of economic sciences who have produced work of outstanding importance. The Royal Swedish Academy of Sciences chooses the prizewinner(s) according to the same principles as for the Nobel Prizes. The prize amount is the same as for the Nobel Prizes, 10 million, and is paid by the Riksbank. If there is more than one winner, the prize amount is shared equally between them.
