Schelling and Aumann win Nobel 

Tyler Cowen presents an excellent review of Thomas Schelling's work which won him a Nobel Prize this morning along with Robert Aumann. I remember having to read Micromotives and Macrobehavior as a student and enjoying it greatly. Cowen points out that Schelling has done much more than game theory, but that book is what I remember best.

I admit I never have heard of Robert Aumann before because, I guess, I don't work much in game theory. Here's a recent interview.
