As "passive leaning" economists snatch up Nobel Prizes, why does the Nobel Foundation seem to invest in an active manner? Passive investing advocates including Harry Markowitz, Paul Samuelson, Friedrich von Hayek, Merton Miller and William Sharpe have all received the prestigious Nobel Prize in Economic Sciences, but the Nobel Foundation members feel they can increase their return while lowering their risk. They admit the genius of Modern Portfolio Theory, but find themselves in hedge funds. Isn't it ironic, don't you think?
