A Big "Thank You" to the NZAE

I'd like to express my heart-felt thanks to the New Zealand Association of Economists for making me a Distinguished Fellow.

The award took place last Thursday evening at the dinner for the 55th Conference of the Association, in Auckland. The award was most humbling, all the more so for coming from those who first supported me in my career.

Recipients of this award in recent years have included such ex-pats as Peter Phillips, Stephen Turnovsky, Leslie Young. John McMillan, and John Riley. All the more reason for me feeling humbled.

Thanks NZAE. I'm truly grateful for this honour.
