The Bank of Sweden Prize in Economic Sciences (Swe.Sveriges Riksbanks pris i ekonomisk vetenskap till Alfred Nobels minne), often colloquially called The Nobel Prize in Economics or The Nobel Prize for Economics, is different from the rest of prizes awarded at the Nobel Prize ceremony in that it is not part of the Alfred Nobel bequest. The Prize was instituted by the Bank of Sweden (Sveriges Riksbank) at its 300th anniversity in 1969. Members of the Nobel family are contesting use of the term "Nobel Prize in Economics" in any context. It is however, in the Nobel Prize context, often referred to as simply "The Prize in Economics".

The NobelPrizes are prizes instituted by the will of Alfred Nobel, awarded to people (and also to organizations in the case of the Nobel Peace Prize) who have done outstanding research, invented groundbreaking techniques or equipment, or made outstanding contributions to society.
The prizes are awarded at formal ceremonies held annually in the Stockholm Concert Hall and the Oslo City Hall on December 10, the date that Alfred Nobel passed away.
A common legend states that Nobel decided against a prize in mathematics because a woman he proposed to (or his wife, or his mistress) rejected him or cheated on him with a famous mathematician, often claimed to be Gösta Mittag-Leffler.
