Explaining the Nobel Awards: Alleviating Global Poverty

The new lecture series "Nobel erklärt" kicked-off at the Kepler Salon and explained the Nobel Prize in Economics.

In order to talk about the Nobel laureates’ groundbreaking research approach, JKU expert René Böheim (Institute of Economics, JKU) first spoke about why countries are poor and what can be done: "The Nobel Prize winners broke with the research tradition and instead of a technocratic approach, they chose a local, experimental approach."
