Economica Phillips Lecture
Date: Thursday 9 February 2012
Venue: Old Theatre, Old Building
Speaker: Professor Christopher Pissarides
Chair: Professor John Van Reenen
Labour markets across the OECD reacted differently to the financial crisis of 2008 and the debt crisis that followed. Professor Pissarides will review these different responses, seek explanations for them, and draw conclusions about labour market policy in recession. The focus will be on unemployment and how to contain its rise in light of the negative shocks to economic activity.
Christopher Pissarides is the Norman Sosnow Chair in Economics, LSE, and recipient of the 2010 Nobel Prize for Economic Sciences.
