    What is commonly called "the Nobel prize in economics" is not a prize instigated by Alfred Nobel, it is instigated by Sverige riksbank (National bank of Sweden) in memorial of Alfred Nobel, and are therefore not a Nobel prize.

    I wonder why tec divers are so fixated on long hoses? Perhaps someone with a Nobel Prize in psychology could figure that out.

    Still, it's commonly called the "Nobel prize" in economics.

    The most prestigious prize in math is still called the Abel prize, though.

    I think you can change the title up to 24 hours after a post is made.
