The Sveriges Riksbank Prize in Economic (2012 Nobel Prize in Economic Sciences) was awarded to Alvin E. Roth and Lloyd S. Shapley today [2] for their work on matching supply and demand for everything from single men and women to organ donors and their recipients.

Americans have won 68% percent of all Nobel winners for economics, while the U.S. accounts for about 21.6% of global GDP. The U.K. ranks second with 11.8% (3.5% world output). Euro nations have provided 8.8% of Laureates.

Sixty nine people, with an average age of 62, won the 43 prizes between 1969 and 2011.
