Nobel Memorial Prize in Economic Sciences 2016 winners

The 2016 Nobel Memorial Prize in Economic Sciences has been awarded to Oliver Hart (British) and Bengt Holmström (Finnish) “for their contributions to contract theory”.

Holmström comes from the Swedish-speaking minority in Finland, where Swedish is a co-official language along with Finnish. The pronunciations of their names in English and Finland Swedish respectively, with the approximation in English for the latter, are as follows:

  • Oliver Hart English pronunciation: OL-i-vər HART [ˈɒl.ᵻv.əɹ ˈhɑːɹt])
  • Bengt Robert Holmström Finland Swedish pronunciation: [ˈbɛŋt ˈroː.bært ˈhɔlm.strœm] (BENGT ROH-bərt HOLM-ström [ˈbɛŋt ˈɹoʊ̯b.əɹt ˈhɔlm.strɜːm])
