One of my favorite economists said it best:

Jimmy Carter's Ignoble "Peace" Prize

by Thomas Sowell  (October 16, 2002)

"...While the Nobel Prize continues to be the most prestigious in the world -- and deservedly so in fields like science and economics -- the Nobel Peace Prize has already been given to a terrorist thug like Yasser Arafat, so perhaps Jimmy Carter is a worthy successor to him, even if he is one of the sorriest presidents and ex-presidents in the history of the United States."
