I had always thought the Nobel for economics was about as worthy of our respect as a Nobel for astrology. Thanks to this trio for their efforts to polish up a badly-tarnished brand, in addition to the benefit to those in the subject populations.

Congratulations to all three winners. I was honored to have taken and completed a number of years ago an online MIT course about global poverty taught by Professors Banerjee and Duflo.
