For economists, who often disagree with one another and get their forecasts wrong, the idea of a Nobel Prize for economics remains controversial after 75 years. This year's winner of the "Prize in Economic Sciences in Memory of Alfred Nobel" will be announced on Monday at 1:00 pm (1100 GMT) at a ceremony in Stockholm that wraps up the 2015 Nobel season. Each year, critics note that Alfred Nobel, the Swedish philanthropist and scientist who founded the other awards, never had the idea to reward economists.
By James Pearson PYONGYANG (Reuters) - Isolated North Korea marked the 70th anniversary of its ruling Workers' Party on Saturday with a massive military parade overseen by leader Kim Jong Un and a senior Chinese official who had delivered President Xi Jinping's call for stronger ties. Thousands of troops stood at attention in perfect formation under a blue autumn sky in Pyongyang's main Kim Il Sung Square, named after Kim Jong Un's grandfather and the founder of the nation, as Kim made his way to the podium. Kim was accompanied by senior Chinese Communist Party official Liu Yunshan and flanked by senior North Korean party and military officials.
