Nobel Prize for Political Science

Just as Barack Obama received the Nobel Peace Prize for not being George W. Bush, Elinor Ostrom has received the Nobel Prize for Economics for not being an economist. It would, indeed, have been a bit embarrasing to reward any economist after the mess they created in the last few years, except maybe for Krugman, who already got one.

The Nobel people have taken the first step towards something that they should have done some time ago: a Nobel Prize in Political Science.
