Through their lives and work, failures and successes – get to know to the individuals who have been awarded the The Sveriges Riksbank Prize in Economic Sciences in Memory of Alfred Nobel. The host for this podcast is Adam Smith, who has the happy task of interviewing new laureates.
Nobel Prize Conversations is a podcast with a new episode every other Thursday.
These easily-accessible conversations delve into how these personalities found their research fields — often by coincidence — how they view collaboration, curiosity and failure, and what keeps them going. The laureates share what they have learned from their career and what they like to do outside of their work – from music to fly-fishing and horseback riding. We let the discussions flow freely, resulting in richly varied stories on topics ranging from poverty prevention to markets for kidney exchange to nudging in behavioural economics.
