December 16: Research publication successes
There have been many success stories in the past year. Economics and Finance faculty won 5 prestigious research grants from SSHRCC; and many faculty published their research in some of the top scholarly journals. Most recently, three of our faculty published in very prestigious journals. Rene Kirkegaard's, "A Mechanism Design Approach to Ranking Asymmetric Auctions" is forthcoming in Econometrica, a journal consistently ranked in the top 3, often first, in the world. Michael Hoy's "Measuring Lifetime Poverty" Vol 146 (6) Nov. 2011: 2544 - 2562 and Johanna Goertz's, "On the Informational Efficiency of Simple Scoring Rules" Vol 146,(4) July 2011: 1464-80 were published in Journal of Economic Theory, a journal that is often ranked in the top 5 in the world. These are amazing accomplishments.
