And the winners are...

Finn Kydland and Ed Prescott got the Nobel Prize in Economics.

Finn Kydland's homepage at Carnegie Mellon.
Ed Prescott's at Minneapolis Fed.

Kydland comes from Norway and the Norwegian newspaper Aftenposten writes about him in this article.

"is only the third Norwegian to win the prestigious award ever"[my emph.]

And that's one more than Sweden by the way.
