The prestigious prizes for achievements in science, literature and peace were created and funded at the behest of the Swedish dynamite inventor and wealthy businessman. Alfred Noble.
They have been awarded since 1901, although the Economics Prize – created by a donation to mark the 300th anniversary of the Central Bank of Sweden – is a later addition to the one first given in 1969.
Although the Economics Prize tends to be overshadowed by the already well-known winners of the Peace and Literature Prize, the winners over the years have included many influential economists, such as Austrian-British Frederick August van Hayek and American Milton Friedman. ۔
