Predictions for Nobel Prizes

Predictions for Nobel Prizes are starting to come out. For this year I am not going to make any, since I failed badly last year. However, there are some fields that will get Nobel Prizes in the future, or at least that is my hope:

1) Field experiments (RCTs).

2) Economics Blogging.

3) Humanities and economics.

Add. 4) Institutional Economics. 

Why bloggers? You might ask. Basically bloggers like Alex and Tyler at Marginal Revolution have done a great effort to make economics available to the general public. Besides their contributions to the economics debate on monetary policy, innovation, etc., etc., they have shaped a large audience that are now more aware of the economic way of thinking.
