A giant in economics, certainly.

But what a boring pick.

My roommate, looking over my shoulder:

"Phelps wins Nobel? This must be a joke website."

I had to explain it was Edmund, not Fred. But can you imagine? "For his scientific discovery that God hates fags. . ."

Sorry. Just trying to make the pick less boring. Phelps (Edmund!) probably deserves it though. Along with a few others I hope will manage the feat before too long.
