  1. To answer your question, I believe that the economics prize should be kept. I say this because the point of the award for economics, is to gratify those who have brought an idea that is greatly beneficial in the realm of economics. This is basically my opinion and I would appreciate it if you say your opinions on this answer.

  2. True, it is important to look at the history of the prize or anything in fact. Furthermore, while there may be a plethora of things to do, at least you have something to work on than nothing at all.
