A Pair Of (Nobel) Aces

The Nobel Prize for Economics goes to two Americans, Thomas Sargent of New York University and Princeton's Christopher Sims, who have separately exposed the flaws in government stimulus spending.

Obama certainly didn't deserve a peace prize (in fact that looks pretty silly now), but these guys seem to know what they're talking about.

Easy mistake, but John Maynard Keynes is the founder of Keynesian (pronouced Cane z in) economics.
