The Nobel Committee has awarded the Nobel Prize in economics to three Americans: Eugene Fama, Lars Peter Hansen, and Robert Shiller. The trio has focused on the behavior of the stock market as well as the efficiency of markets. Marketplace’s Nancy Marshall Genzer joins David Brancaccio to discuss the economists and their work.
Marketplace is on a mission.
We believe Main Street matters as much as Wall Street, economic news is made relevant and real through human stories, and a touch of humor helps enliven topics you might typically find…well, dull.
Through the signature style that only Marketplace can deliver, we’re on a mission to raise the economic intelligence of the country—but we don’t do it alone. We count on listeners and readers like you to keep this public service free and accessible to all. Will you become a partner in our mission today?
