Background

The Nobel Memorial Prize in Economic Sciences, officially Sveriges Riksbank Prize in Economic Sciences in Memory of Alfred Nobel, commonly but erroneously referred to as the Nobel Prize in Economics, was not established by the will of Alfred Nobel, nor is it likely that he considered economics a science.

Instead, it was established in 1968, 71 years after Nobel's death, by Sweden's central bank, the Sveriges Riskbank, on the occassion of the bank's 300th anniversary, with a donation to the Nobel Foundation, which refers to it as a "category of the Nobel Prize".
