ACEA 2018

Just returned from a great trip to the Atlantic Canada Economics Association Conference in Fredericton, New Brunswick. I presented my paper “The Tax-Spending Nexus: Canadian Provincial Evidence” with Wayne Simpson (Manitoba). Thanks to Herb Emery (UNB) for putting together the session, and to all the conference organizers for putting together a great weekend!! It was also great to catch up with Talan Iscan (Dal) and Murshed Chowdhury (UNB)!

New Paper Forthcoming

My paper “Racial Differentials in the Wealth Effects of the Financial Crisis and Great Recession” is now forthcoming in the Journal of Economics, Race, and Policy. This is joint with Dan Giedeman and Leslie Muller. This was my first time working with Leslie and it was a great experience, thank you to her and Dan for their work on this. Also big thanks to seminar participants at Lakehead University and the referees for their help in significantly improving this work.

New Institutional Economics

With the semester over I figured I’d post the course outline for my recently completed Honours/Grad course in New Institutional Economics. I will definitely update it over the coming months to try and incorporate new papers and topics, so if any of you work/teach in this area and have suggestions please get in touch! Thanks!

Lakehead University

Just recently returned from presenting my work “Racial Differentials in the Wealth Effects of the Financial Crisis and Great Recession” (coauthored with Dan Giedeman and Leslie Muller of GVSU) at the economics department of Lakehead University. Had a great day there and really appreciate my fantastic host Karl Skogstad, all the members of the economics department, and all those that attended the seminar for their helpful feedback and warm hospitality.
