And the winner is...

Dale Mortenson, Peter Diamond, and Christopher Pissarides! Wow - that was my wish list (with Peter Diamond thrown in for good measure).

They were awarded the prize for their analysis of markets with search frictions. This is very closely related to what I'm proposing doing doctoral work on. Congratulations!

UPDATE: Now here's some rich irony for you... one of the guys that just won a Nobel for matching frictions in the labor market is having his nomination for a Federal Reserve Board of Governors seat held up by Congress!
