Christopher A. Pissarides


Nobel Prize Conversations

In this digital conversation podcast we meet Christopher Pissarides, a humble London School of Economics professor who finished his PhD in two years and was awarded the 2010 prize in economic sciences. He and his co-laureates Peter Diamond and Dale Mortensen were awarded for finding ways to incorporate real-world frictions into the mathematical models that describe market behaviour. Their Diamond-Mortensen-Pissarides (DMP) model is one of the most widely-used analytical tools for labour markets.

Besides discussing labour markets, Christopher Pissarides speaks about educational systems, how life has been affected by covid-19 and how he experienced moving from Cyprus to the UK.

The host of this podcast is’s Adam Smith.
