He announced that he would donate the prize money.
Three economists say the money awarded for the Nobel Prize is in economic research. All three donated their prize money. The prize money will be given to the ‘Visa Fund for Research in Development Economics’.
Howard University runs this institute. As Esther Dufalo said, I read about Mary Currie in her childhood, how she spent the Nobel Prize for Radium purchase, so that she could continue to study. So we should support the next generation as well.
