RE: This year econ nobel prize?

For some reason I didn't get this message until Wednesday, Oct 11, 2000.
I'll take a safe "guess" the James "Heckit" Heckman and Daniel "Don't call
me Janice" McFadden are shoo-ins :-)  How can Prof. Baumol continuously be
ignored by this so-called august Committee.  Neither Heckman or McFadden
combined have had the theoretical impact on economics as Bill Baumol or
Albert Hirschman  Am I alone in my thinking about Baumol/Hirschman as the
most deserving economists without a Nobel Prize on their c.v.?

Is that feasible?
