Meet the winners of Nobel Prize in Economy 2020

Leave a Comment
The Royal Swedish Academy of Sciences has announced the winners of Nobel Prize in Economic Sciences for the year 2020 (also known as Sveriges Riksbank Prize in Economic Sciences in Memory of Alfred Nobel) to Paul R. Milgrom and Robert B. Wilson for improvements to auction theory and inventions of new auction formats.”

This year’s Laureates, Paul Milgrom and Robert Wilson, have studied how auctions work. They have also used their insights to design new auction formats for goods and services that are difficult to sell in a traditional way, such as radio frequencies. Their discoveries have benefitted sellers, buyers and taxpayers around the world.

People have always sold things to the highest bidder, or bought them from whoever makes the cheapest offer. Nowadays, objects worth astronomical sums of money change hands every day in auctions, not only household objects, art and antiquities, but also securities, minerals and energy. Public procurements can also be conducted as auctions.

Using auction theory, researchers try to understand the outcomes of different rules for bidding and final prices, the auction format. The analysis is difficult, because bidders behave strategically, based on the available information. They take into consideration both what they know themselves and what they believe other bidders to know.

“This year’s Laureates in Economic Sciences started out with fundamental theory and later used their results in practical applications, which have spread globally. Their discoveries are of great benefit to society,” says Peter Fredriksson, chair of the Prize Committee.

Proud Moment : 8 Indian Beaches get International Blue Flag Certification

Leave a Comment
As a global recognition for India's conservation and sustainable development efforts, Eight beaches in India have been awarded the prestigious Blue Flag certification, the Union Minister of Environment, Forest and Climate Change Prakash Javadekar announced yesterday.
 
The Blue Flag Certification has been awarded to 8 beaches spread across 5 states and 2 union territories namely :
  • Shivrajpur Beach (Gujarat)
  • Ghoghla Beach (Diu)
  • Kasarkod Beach (Karnataka)
  • Padubidri Beach (Karnataka)
  • Kappad Beach (Kerala)
  • Rushikonda Beach (Andhra Pradesh)
  • Golden Beach (Odisha) and
  • Radhanagar Beach (Andaman & Nicobar Islands)

These beaches were recognized by an international jury comprising of eminent members of the United Nations Environment Programme (UNEP), the United Nations World Tourism Organisation (UNWTO), Denmark-based NGO Foundation for Environmental Education (FEE) and the International Union for Conservation of Nature (IUCN).

What is Blue Flag Certification ?

The iconic Blue Flag is one of the world’s most recognized voluntary eco-labels awarded to beaches, marinas, and sustainable boating tourism operators. The Blue Flag certification is a globally recognised eco-label accorded by "Foundation for Environment Education, Denmark" based on 33 stringent criteria under four major heads -- environmental education and information, bathing water quality, environment management and conservation, and safety and services at the beaches.

India till now had none of its beaches tagged as “Blue Flag”.  With this, India became the first country in “Asia-Pacific” region which has achieved this feat in just about 2 years’ time.  Japan, South Korea and the UAE are the only other Asian nations who have been conferred with a couple of Blue Flag beaches, however, in a time frame of about five to six years. Spain, so far, has the highest number of Blue Flag certified sites.

Important Note :  India has also been awarded the 3rd prize by the jury under the "International Best Practices" for pollution control in coastal regions.
