Nothing new about liberals making that sort of statement. What hasn't been pointed out before, is the irony of Sweden (among the least laissez-faire economies in the world) issuing the Nobel mostly to laissez-faire advocates. (Think they're having a little inside Swedish joke at somebody's expense?)
Yeah, that was pretty good. Interesting to ponder.
It's funny, the article mentioned Myron Scholes. Say what you will about his politics (which I don't agree with), or his repeated failures as a fund manager, there is no doubt that his work was paradigm-shifting and is now fundamental to options trading. He probably deserved the Nobel as much as anyone.
