Celebrating a Yale Nobelist

Most Nobel Prize contenders are on high alert this time of year for the fabled early-morning call from Stockholm. But at a press conference yesterday celebrating his Nobel win, Sterling Professor of Economics William Nordhaus ’63 said he actually slept through the call. “My daughter called me around 7 and said ‘isn’t it nice?’ And I said ‘what is that?’” Nordhaus told a packed classroom in Evans Hall. “And that’s how I found out.” Nordhaus was cited for his work on documenting the real economic costs of climate change.
