The 1999 Bank of Sweden Prize in Economic Sciences in Memory of Alfred
been awarded to Professor Robert
A. Mundell of Columbia University “for his analysis of monetary and
fiscal policy under different exchange rate regimes and his analysis of
optimum currency areas.”
For the second year in a row, the About.com Nobel
Prize Poll (which is completely unscientific) has correctly predicted
the winner of the Nobel Prize. (See below for the
top vote-getters.) While last year Amartya Sen was the clear front-runner,
this year saw more competition, but Robert Mundell came out the winner
of both in the Poll and the prize.
For more information on the work that led to the prize, see the Prize
His Home Page
at Columbia contains several articles, a CV,
and other information.
