Economics as science and ideology
2016 (English)In: World Economics Association Newsletter, ISSN 2049-3274, Vol. 6, no 6, 3-4 p.Article, book review (Other academic) Published
This is a book review of "The Nobel Factor: The Prize in Economics, Social Democracy and the Market Turn" by Avner Offer and Gabriel Söderberg (2016) where the history of the Economics Prize is discussed. Two Swedish professors in Economics, Gunnar Myrdal and Assar Lindbeck with different ideological orientations play a major role when discussing ideological tendencies in the choice of Laureates. In the review it is argued that this "Bank of Sweden Prize in Economic Sciences in Memory of Alfred Nobel" is not comparable to the Nobel awards in physics because of a significan role for values and ideology.
