In this edition of This Week in Business History, Kelly Barner shares the stories of two notable Nobel Laureates in Economics: Milton Friedman and John Nash. Their research into theoretical economic science is as complicated as their own lives were. She will also dig into the origins of the 40-hour workweek and why piecework-based compensation is more motivating (and merciful) than straight time-based wages.
