Assar Lindbeck (1985), Chairman of the Economics prize committee

Assar Lindbeck (1985), Chairman of the Economics prize committee for over a decade till the mid-1990s, employed a five-fold classification (basic economic theory, theoretical contributions concerning specific sectors, new methods of economic analysis, pure empirical research and non-formalized innovative thinking). Subsequently, Lindbeck (NFW) adopted a more generic classification (general equilibrium, macroeconomics, microeconomics, interdisciplinary research and new methods of economic analysis).
