Letter: Britain has its share of Nobel winners

Click to follow
Sir: In his article 'Nobel prize won by US economist' (14 October), Robert Chote says that since 1969 19 Americans have won the prize but only six Britons.

As the population of the US is approximately four times that of the UK, would it not have been more correct to say that six Britons have won the prize but only 19 Americans?

Yours sincerely,
