Which institution has the most Nobel Prizes in Economics?

Nobel Prize WinnersThe Nobel Prize in Economics was first awarded in 1969 with Angus Deaton being the 2015 recipient receiving US$975,000 for his research into policy responses to poverty and how individual choices shape a better economy. Seaton became the sixth Princeton University academic staff member to win the honor – New York Time columnist and Princeton Professor Paul Krugman being another. However if you look at the institution with the most Nobel Laureates in Economics the University of Chicago is quite far ahead with twelve. They include Milton Friedman and Gary Becker.
