Nobel Prize Conversations
“I guess I was halfway content with the idea that somehow I’d become an economist”
Robert B. Wilson didn’t really see himself as an economist until he reached the age of 50. In this conversation, conducted in March 2021, Wilson speaks about his journey to becoming an economist, about how he received the news about his prize in economic sciences and the culture shock he experienced when he started to study at Harvard University.
The host of this podcast is nobelprize.org’s Adam Smith.
