In their own words

See what the Nobel Laureates had to say on the day.

Should we have a world currency? The central bank must be subject to political supervision - there’s a danger having one emperor in the world.

Roger B. Myerson

When it comes to ethics in robots and AI, the focus is not on the machines, but the interaction between humans and the machines.

Peter A. Diamond

The main beneficiaries of new technologies will be our youth, the people who will suffer are those whose jobs are replaced by machines. To counteract jobs being taken by robots, you need a sense of adventure, and be willing to take risks.

A. Michael Spence

Change is inevitable, technology is accelerating, but it’s what you do with your skills that makes the difference. And we need luck too, but people who work harder, and are better educated, often seem to be luckier. So if you prepare well, when you have a serendipitous event or some good luck, what do you do? You don’t let it go by, you seize it because you’re prepared for it.

Robert C. Merton
