Well done Christopher Pissarides

A British Greek Cypriot economist has been named as one of three laureates sharing the 2010 economics Nobel for work helping to explain unemployment and the jobs market.
The Royal Swedish Academy of Sciences said yesterday the 10 million Swedish crown (around €1 million) prize recognised Christopher Pissarides and US professors Peter Diamond and Dale Mortensen for their work analysing the process of buying and selling, and how job vacancies and wages are affected by regulation and policy.


So congratulations to Christopher for achieving this distinction he joins a number of other prominent British born citizens of Greek or G Cypriot origin who have done well despite the difficulties faced by those from ethnic minority groups. He honors the community with his achievement.
