Nobel prize for economics
Banal though it may be, I remember playing SimCity 2000 as a teenager on my computer. Every time I tried to set up a high-tax, high-service economy within my city, my economy, followed by the city itself, stagnated. The answers have been staring me in the face for years.
Many years ago in a different place I noted the excellent work The Sims were doing in teaching real economics. My boys were similarly impressed by the truths it revealed. I have never played it but I bet I could beat Gordon, Darling and Batshit with one hand tied behind my back. And The Sims and Sims 2 with 30 million copies, at least, shipped deserve the Nobel Prize because I can't think of any other economic's text so widely spread that isn't a little red book.
