The analytical program "However," with Mikhail Leontyev 16 October 2012
Nothing is more important today, at least for economics, of what is happening in the global economy. It would seem that it would be for the research in this area and for the prediction of the consequences and results that the Nobel Prizes in economics would have to be presented. And for what else? The Nobel Prize in Economics was awarded to Americans Alvin Roth from Harvard and Lloyd Shapley from the University of California for developing mathematical models for the distribution of a limited number of resources among users. For example, Roth optimally distributed students to schools in New York and brought kidney donors to those who needed them. Shepli contributed to the optimization of winnings between players in the theory of cooperative games. Both winners are known for their contribution to "game theory," which has more to do with mathematics than economics.
Games are very exciting and even useful. However, these applied models have nothing to do with economics, with “cognition of processes”. It seems that the Nobel community, that is, the modern economic establishment, generally denies the knowability of the economy. That is, economics as a science. In any manifestations.
On the eve, American Robert Schiller, one of those who is believed to have predicted the current crisis, was called the winner by the title of laureate. In fact, Schiller really predicted the collapse of the IT bubble in 2000, and the mortgage bubble in 2008.
Schiller - the famous bubble. However, no one in a hurry to grab it. Even like a straw. Although nothing such fundamental he - God forbid! - did not open. Just correctly counts and predicts. And he was asked? Who was his tongue at all? And even more so, no one asked the fundamental economic theories describing the essence and development of the current crisis.
"Any person who received this award is considered a knight without fear and reproach who never makes mistakes. However, the trouble is that if you give the Nobel Prize in economics to anyone who deals with the nature of the crisis, then almost automatically this look the nature of the crisis will be the only true one. And if there is only one right opinion, it means that someone is to blame for the fact that the crisis went according to this scenario. And often, accordingly, someone needs to be punished for that. thing x TJT avoid all the officials - that the research that the public ", - says the economist Mikhail Khazin.
In fact, these ridiculous Nobel prizes are the suicide of modern Western model economics. Self-shot. The worst evidence of the crisis than even macroeconomic indicators. However, there are worse things: the Nobel Peace Prize awarded this year to the European Union. For what? Obviously, for the fact that impotence in overcoming European problems has not yet led to war. At least in Europe. This is really a great merit.
