(CC) Nobel prize/WikimediaThe Royal Swedish Academy of Sciences has decided to award the Sveriges Riksbank Prize in Economic Sciences in Memory of Alfred Nobel 2018 to:

William D. Nordhaus (Yale University, New Haven, USA) “for integrating climate change into long-run macroeconomic analysis” and Paul M. Romer (NYU Stern School of Business, New York, USA) “for integrating technological innovations into long-run macroeconomic analysis”.

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. Their contributions provide us with fundamental insights into the causes and consequences of technological innovation and climate change.

More information can be found on the Nobel Prize organization’s web page.

Some books by Nordhaus are available at the Library (see the catalog here). Also, you can use Discovery to search for articles by these Nobel laureates in Economic Sciences.
