My alma mater George Mason University beat defending National Champion North Carolina yesterday to advance to the Sweet 16 of the NCAA Tournament. George Mason still has more Nobel Prize winners (2) over Sweet 16 appearances (1)!
Vernon L. Smith of George Mason University and Daniel Kahneman (Prospect Theory fame) split the 2002 Nobel Prize. Smith is intimately involved with The Interdisciplinary Center for Economic Science (ICES) at George Mason University. The ICES is a research center and laboratory specializing in experimental economics.
