Committee for the Prize in Economic Sciences in Memory of Alfred Nobel


Committee for the Prize in Economic Sciences in Memory of Alfred Nobel
Announcement of the Alfred Nobel Memorial Prize in Economic sciences 2008

The Committee for the Prize in Economic Sciences in Memory of Alfred Nobel is the prize committee for the Alfred Nobel Memorial Prize in Economic Sciences,[1] and fills the same role as the Nobel Committees does for the Nobel Prizes. This means that the Committee is responsible for proposing laureates for the Prize.[2] The Committee for the Prize in Economic Sciences in Memory of Alfred Nobel is appointed by the Royal Swedish Academy of Sciences. It usually consists of Swedish professors of economics or related subjects who are members of the Academy, although the Academy in principle could appoint anyone to the Committee.

The Committee is a working body without decision power, and the final decision to award the Prize is taken by the entire Royal Swedish Academy of Sciences, after having a first discussion in the Academy's Class for Social Sciences.[2]
