Doorbell cam captures moment Paul Milgrom finds out he has won the Nobel prize for economics

US academic Robert Wilson had to walk across the street at 2am in the morning to deliver the news to his fellow Stanford University colleague Paul Milgrom that the two had won the 2020 Nobel prize for economics. Milgrom had his phone on silent mode, prompting his neighbour to step outside and deliver the news in person. ‘I was asleep and the doorbell rang at 2 in the morning. And then I picked up the phone – it’s a video doorbell. And I saw Bob’s face and he was knocking at the door, telling me that they were trying to call me and that we had won a Nobel Prize, which is pretty, pretty good news,’ Milgrom told Reuters. The pair won the prize for work on auctions hailed as benefiting buyers and sellers around the world of everything from fishing quotas to aircraft landing slots

    When Norwegian politician has put Mr Trump's name forward for the 2021 prize, citing the president's role in the recent peace deal , Nobel Price means nothing to me from that moment. They should let Trump win so he can use winning price to pay some of $420million his personal debt rather than cooking his company book with his personal advisor/ daughter lol

    Should've showed up like Publishers Clearing House with a giant Nobel Prize and party horns.
