The Nobel prize is the most prestigious award mostly if not always given to dumbass liberals and terrorists to make them feel like they are intelligent!
I’m not sure if that’s entirely true in STEM disciplines.
Economics is kinda borderline, and can go either way, from insightful to insipid. But, its complicated, sometimes STEM-like, sometimes not.
I would remind everyone that Yassir Arafat was awarded a Nobel prize.
The Econ prize has gone to Hayek friedman stigler buchanan coase
And a fair number of other very solid pro-freedom economists
Lots the other way as well but more balanced than peace or lit prizes.
When I think Nobel, I think of STEM... groundbreaking chem, biochem, medical, or physics. Of course, the Nobel palette is broader.
I put Econ somewhere in between the hard sciences and the bullcrap prizes like Peace and literature.
