Video Lectures from Economics Nobel Laureates

The Nobel Foundation, via its website, provides summaries and technical articles ("advanced information") about Economics prize winners' research, along with video of the prize lectures. This set of links has been created to give educators an overview of the videos available on the site. Video Interviews with the prize winners have their own listing.

Official Nobel videos are copyright Nobel Media AB and The Nobel Foundation. For some laureates, we also link below to the Nobel Perspectives project, which hosts video interviews with the laureates with additional expert commentary.
