Elinor Ostrom talks to reporters after winning the 2009 Nobel Prize in Economics.

This week on Noon Edition: a conversation with Nobel Prize winner Elinor Ostrom. She was in-studio talking about her whirlwind year as well as her work.  Some highlights from today’s program include:

  • Discussion on the theory that made Dr. Ostrom the first woman to win the Nobel Prize for economics
  • Local examples of her research and theories in action from township trustees to farmers markets
  • Ways local government is applying Dr. Ostrom’s work
  • And a recounting of the day Dr. Ostrom learned she had won a Nobel Prize
  • Luci Englert McKean

    Can Lin please speak about her personal career arc, specifically about how her curiosity, enjoyment and passion for what she does adds to her long-term purpose and direction in her career, and cycles again to add more wonder and maybe willingness to take risks to learn more?
