Last But Not Least - Nobel Prize in Economics - Place your bets!

Although was not originally encompassed in the original vision of Mr. Nobel, Economics gets the last of the Nobel prizes, making someone rich and famous already an super-star sort of speak, usually a perfect way to retirement, speeches and generally mutual recognition. But , again, let's not be awfully mean, money and success are also a good proxy for excellence (hopefully, in most cases)and these Norwegians are pretty damn good in covering any "risks" (incidentally economists go often in "pairs"). Personally, I would like to see an excentric person like Sala-i-Martin wining but that is very unlikely, also considering his latest evolution publication wise. Then, perhaps Barro, Romer or Krugman. But again, nobody can successfully predict. We'll just have to wait and see.
