The Bank of Canada recently announced the winner of their Fellowship Award and the recipient is none other than QED’s Robert Clark.
“A leading expert on the industrial organization of financial markets, Professor Clark’s work has studied competition in the banking sector and its implications for financial stability. His research is focused on the evolution of banking market structure, often resulting from changes in regulations or technology and the impact of this evolution on mortgage pricing, access to credit and bank risk. He has also published widely on the economics of industrial organization writ large, including research on procurement policy, price controls and price-fixing. He holds the Stephen J.R. Smith Chair in Economic Policy at Queen’s and is a fellow at CIRANO and a faculty advisor at the John Deutsch Institute.”
