Plagiarism and theft is the order of the day in academia.
It's all about getting a Chair. And getting the right students.

Decades ago an eminent professor wrote a paper on our joint work without putting my name on it. I researched his other papers and he seemed to have suspiciously few collaborators. So I wrote my own version. My version was published before his I think. He had been expected to get an FRS but never did. Then he got Parkinson’s. And died.

My motto for any time I am crossed is (although clearly not applied here):

“I never forgive. However you are so insignificant that I will probably forget.”

Indeed; "f**k the bedrudgers"

Decades ago an eminent professor wrote a paper on our joint work without putting my name on it.
So it wasn't even "Eminent_Prof, P. Wilmott <title>"?
Adding insult to injury.

My very first C++ book was translated into Romanian by the Popovici brothers (all 3 of them) and sold under Popovici, Popovici and Popovici. Seemingly the sales paid their salaries for 6 months.

They pay lip service to Plato, Aristotle and Kant but not to the one putting bread on the table.

Oh my bad. It is now the fifth time.
Maria Sklodowska & Pierre Curie (1903)
Iréne Curie (the daughter of Maria & Pierre) & Fréderic Joliot (1935)
Gerty & Carl Cori (1947)
May Britt & Edvard Moser (2014)
Esther Duflo & Abhijit Banerjee (2019)

There is also Alva & Gunnar Myrdal but different disciplines and not the same year.

The early reaction of the generally noisy, trolly and often mean spirited forum on EconJobRumors is nearly unanimous in the opinion that this is like the worst prize ever. They also dwell a bit on the history of the relationship between the two from MIT, where I guess a key development was revealed in (of all things) a Lunch with the FT article some seven years ago.

"isn't it the second time that a married couple get together a Nobel prize?"

"Oh my bad. It is now the fifth time."

Actually four times?

"Although not an official Nobel prize, the Economics Sciences award is massive recognition for academic achievement "

But if include unofficial couples then possibly more than 5!
