Goofs

Strictly speaking, John Nash didn't win the Nobel Prize because there isn't a prize for Economics or Mathematics. (Alfred Nobel who willed his estate to the Nobel foundation saw no need for a prize in mathematics.) In 1969 the Swedish Central Bank established the "The Sveriges Riksbank Prize in Economic Sciences in Memory of Alfred Nobel". This prize is presented in the same ceremony and is therefore often mistaken for a proper Nobel Prize. It is even often referred to as the "Nobel Prize in Economics" in daily conversation; the fictional character of President Jed Bartlet on The West Wing was also presented as a Nobel Prize winner (for economics) with the show also not making the real-world distinctions.
