It is that time of the year once more. September is coming to an end and the academia, media, and students all over the world are waiting with bated breadth for the announcement of Nobel Prize winners for 2008.
The announcements start trickling in from the first week of October - starting with the names of winners for physiology and medicine. The Nobel Prize in economics, this year will be announced on October 13.

However, a few names have cropped up as the possible winners of the Economics Nobel for 2008. These names find prominent mention in various blog posts, in comments by Nobel winners like Joseph Stiglitz, in indications from the British betting agency Ladbrokes, and in media reports.
The list also includes the names of three Indians. To know more about them and other possible winners please read on...
