A Nobel Cause

Very apropos that the Nobel committee gave the prize to economists who did work in unemployment. Nothing sexy this year, just plain old unemployment. Nice.

People who know a lot more than me have said enough about it, so here’s a brief roundup (which includes more detailed roundups). Let’s start with the mainstream media:

And then the academics:

  • Tyler Cowen with a comprehensive roundup of the works and bios of all three laureates.
  • Mark Thoma does another roundup.
  • Krugman seems happy about Diamond, not sure how he feels about the others.
  • Brad Delong is pleased (as he should be).
  • Oh, and they live-blogged the Nobel process at Cheap Talk.
