In addition to my role as a faculty member at Queen's University I am engaged in a number of outside activities.
In the last three years I have been a member of the board of directors of the National Bureau of Economic Research, a US non-profit organization devoted to economic research.
I periodically receive compensation for outside projects or presentations. During the past three years I have received amounts in excess of CAD 500 from each of: the Federal Reserve Bank of St Louis, the Federal Reserve Bank of Richmond, and the C.D. Howe Institute.
My research is funded by the Social Sciences and Humanities Research Council of Canada and by the Bank of Canada Research Fellowship Program. Neither places any restrictions of any kind on the content.
