Thanks for the Honour!

Recently, I became an Honorary Professor in the Department of Economics in the Management School at the University of Waikato, in New Zealand. The appointment took effect on 1 January.

The economics group at Waikato is very energetic and productive, so I'm really grateful for this honour and for the opportunity to interact with them .

I'm still on faculty, full-time, at the the University of Victoria in Canada. However, I'm expecting that my new link will enable me to play a more active role in the profession in New Zealand (where I studied and lived for many years) than has been possible in recent times.

So, a big "thank you" to those who made this wonderful opportunity possible!

  1. Hi David: Congratulations and thank you for this blog.

  2. Congratulations! Waikato is also home of the fabulous Weka machine learning language and package. Perhaps your new link could permit cross-pollination and turn up some good open source research in econometrics.

  3. Congratulations! And thank you for this blog. It is very useful to learn and correct potential econometric mistakes.
