On October 4th, the Department of Economics and Finance held its Annual Chair's Honour Reception to recognize and congratulate many of the department's undergraduate students. The exclusive event was attended by students who are on the Chair's Honour List. These students are registered in one of the Department's majors and have achieved a cumulative average of 80% or higher. Members of the newly created Finance Honours Society were also invited.
Faculty and graduate students are invited to a workshop "The Systematic Linking of Historical Records" that brings together researchers from Economics, Computing Science and History. Some papers at the workshop will explore new linking techniques, other papers will discuss metrics to assess the quality of the linked data, and yet other papers will illustrate what can be learned from a methodologically-sensitive use of the linked data.
The Governing Board of the Institute of New Economic Thinking (INET) together with the Centre for International Governance Innovation (CIGI) have jointly awarded Department of Economics Prof. Ross McKitrick a $107,250 grant for his 3-year project “State-Contingent Environmental Policy”.
The CIGI-INET Program on New Economic Theory, Practice and Governance serves to advance research on issues of critical importance to economics and international governance.
