Professor Finn Kydland, 2004 Nobel laureate and Professor of Economics at the University of California Santa Barbara and at Carnegie Mellon University, will visit Queen's this week as a John Weatherall Distinguished Fellow in the Department of Economics. Professor Kydland is the keynote speaker at the 2009 meeting of the Canadian Macroeconomics Study Group, a two-day conference hosted by Queen's on November 6th and 7th.

Professor Kydland received the Nobel Prize with Edward Prescott for their “contributions to dynamic macroeconomics: the time consistency of economic policy and the driving forces behind business cycles." The Weatherall Visiting Scholar Fund has brought eminent economists to Queen's since 2007.
