Robert Lucas won a million dollars and a Nobel Prize this month for his economic theory.

And she was lucky in another way: the settlement stipulated that if Lucas won the prize after October 31st, 1995, the clause was void.

As for Robert Lucas, he says a deal is a deal--adding it's hard to be unpleasant after winning a prize like that.
