Congrats to Oliver Hart and Bengt Holmstrom on the Nobel Prize

Congratulations to my friends and advisors Oliver Hart and Bengt Holmstrom on winning the Nobel Prize in Economics.

Oliver was on my PhD thesis committee back when he taught at MIT and helped me understand the Theory of the Firm. I used his work a lot in this paper of mine "Information Assets, Technology and Organization" but my biggest contribution to economic science might be the small bit of feedback I gave Oliver on his paper "Property Rights and the Nature of the Firm".

Bengt is colleague at MIT and we share common interests on how information affects economic organization. I remember getting advice from him when I was working on my thesis and Bengt was a professor at Yale.

It seems like Nobel Prize winners are disproportionately very nice people. Oliver and Bengt certainly fit that mold.
