Letter: In brief 2

December 14, 2001

The article on Nobel prizes, "What does it take to be a consistent winner?" ( THES , December 7) states that "three of the five UK economics winners were from Cambridge".

Former staff or students of the London School of Economics have won 12 of the 30 or so Nobels in economics. Just a handful were British-born. Surely universities should take precedence over nationalities.
