Ben S. Bernanke, Douglas W. Diamond and Philip H. Dybvig awarded the Prize in Economic Sciences for 2022
News The Royal Swedish Academy of Sciences has decided to award the Sveriges Riksbank Prize in Economic Sciences in Memory of Alfred Nobel for 2022 (the Nobel Prize in Economics) to Ben S. Bernanke, Douglas W. Diamond and Philip H. Dybvig for their research on banks and financial crises.
The Riksbank founded the Nobel Prize in Economics with the assistance of a donation in conjunction with the Bank’s 300th anniversary in 1968. With this donation, the Riksbank undertook to award prize money every year in an amount equivalent to that awarded for the other Nobel Prizes. The laureates, however, are appointed by the Royal Swedish Academy of Sciences.
The prize was awarded for the first time in 1969 and is awarded, every year, to a person or persons who have produced work of outstanding importance in the field of economic sciences.
