At an online briefing arranged by MIT, Angrist described a recent project on the hot-button issue of access to elite public schools in which he and fellow researchers found that the reason graduates of those schools tend to do well has more to do with selective admissions than with education. “So essentially we're arguing that access to that type of school should not be at the top of the list of the policy concerns for somebody who wants to improve public education,” he said in an online briefing arranged MIT. Angrist, 61, said he missed the Nobel committee’s phone call and had to get the number from another Nobel laureate. “Initially, they didn't take my call,” he said. “Eventually I found the right person.”    MIT Department of Economics/via REUTERS

List, 53, said the academy caught up with him while on vacation in Amsterdam with his wife, who in the past had liked to joke that somebody might be calling him from Sweden.

Interviewed by U.S. and Japanese journalists at his home in Princeton, Manabe said he believed his award reflected the Academy’s recognition of climate change, which he said will continue to intensify with more droughts, torrential rains, warming of land masses and melting of polar ice. Asked in English how he would address climate change sceptics, he smiled and replied, “That problem is about a million times more difficult than understanding climate change. It is very mysterious to me.”    REUTERS/Mike Segar
