Hurwicz, Myerson, and Maskin--The Winners of the Nobel Memorial Prize in Economics

I'm not going to try to provide any anaylsys of their work--others have beaten me to it--so look at the piece on line at the Chronicle of Higher Education, or hike on over to the Marginal Revolution blog, where Alex and Tyler discuss the work in general, and the work of Maskin, Myerson, and Hurwicz specifically. This is a pure theory award (although there re a lot of applications), and the theory is fairly dense.
