Ec 10 Nobel Trivia

From my inbox:

Professor Mankiw,
I took Ec 10 during my freshman year, 1979-1980. It may not be obvious from his profile, but today’s Nobel Prize winner Chris Pissarides taught my Ec 10 section that year during his one-year visit to Harvard. So tell your current students that the section leader they are struggling to understand through accented English may someday be a Nobel prize winner.
I read your blog and my son’s college class uses your textbook.
