Hace unos momentos se anunció el Nobel de Economía del 2012 (Comunicado) el cual fue otorgado a Alvin Roth y Lloyd Shapley

La nota en WSJ
Alvin Roth of Harvard University and Lloyd Shapley of the University of California Los Angeles won the prize "for the theory of stable allocations and the practice of market design," the Royal Swedish Academy of Sciences said. "This year's Prize concerns a central economic problem: how to match different agents as well as possible," the academy said in a statement. "For example, students have to be matched with schools, and donors of human organs with patients in need of a transplant. How can such matching be accomplished as efficiently as possible? What methods are beneficial to what groups? The prize rewards two scholars who have answered these questions on a journey from abstract theory on stable allocations to practical design of market institutions."

Por cierto, Roth acaba de afiliarse este año con Standford!!!
