The Royal Swedish Academy of Sciences awarded the 2018 Nobel Memorial Prize for Economics to American economists William Nordhaus and Paul Romer, in recognition of their bodies of research in integrating into economic analysis consideration of issues of climate change and technological innovation.
“William D. Nordhaus and Paul M. Romer have designed methods for addressing some of our time’s most basic and pressing questions about how we create long-term sustained and sustainable economic growth,” writes the press release from the Royal Swedish Academy of Sciences. “At its heart, economics deals with the management of scarce resources. … This year’s Laureates… have significantly broadened the scope of economic analysis by constructing models that explain how the market economy interacts with nature and knowledge.”
Nordhaus, currently Sterling Professor of Economics at Yale University, is best known and was recognized for his work on economic modeling and climate change, specifically “for integrating climate change into long-run macroeconomic analysis.”
Romer, formerly Chief Economist and Senior Vice President of the World Bank and professor of economics at the Stern School of Business at New York University, was recognized specifically “for integrating technological innovations into long-run macroeconomic analysis.”
