The Nobel Prize 2023 announcements which commenced on October 2, concluded with the last announcement of the year in the field of Economic Sciences. These latest awards follow those in medicine, physics, chemistry, literature, and peace that were announced last week.

Nobel Prize in Economics 2022

The laureates of last year's Economic Sciences prize, Ben Bernanke, Douglas Diamond, and Philip Dybvig, were recognised for their groundbreaking work on “bank failures and their profound impact on America's response to the 2007-2008 financial crisis.”

As per an official announcement from the previous year, these laureates have significantly advanced our comprehension of the critical role that banks play in the economy, especially in times of financial turmoil. A key revelation in their research was the crucial importance of preventing bank collapses. The foundation of their research was established by Ben Bernanke, Douglas Diamond, and Philip Dybvig in the early 1980s. Their analyses have held substantial practical significance in the regulation of financial markets and the management of financial crises.

What are Nobel Prizes?

The renowned Nobel Prizes recognise outstanding contributions in the fields of physics, chemistry, medicine, literature, and the promotion of peace. Alfred Nobel, the Swedish inventor known for his invention of dynamite, established this enduring legacy through these prizes before his demise in 1896. In 1968, the Nobel Prize in Economic Sciences was introduced, with sponsorship from the central bank of Sweden.

Alfred Nobel designated the Royal Swedish Academy of Sciences to confer the Nobel Prizes in physics and chemistry, the Swedish Academy for the field of literature, the Karolinska Institute, Sweden's medical university, for physiology or medicine, and the Nobel Peace Prize to be awarded by the Norwegian parliament.
