Congratulations to Dr. M. Scott Taylor on being named the President of the Canadian Economics Association, an honor bestowed on only one other University of Calgary department member in our history. Scott is current Vice President for 2017; President-Elect in 2018, and finally his year as President starts in 2019. Scott shares the distinction of being a President from U of C with our former faculty member and University Professor Curtis Eaton who was President in 2003. Past Presidents include such luminaries in the profession as Richard Lipsey, Peter Howitt, and James McKinnon. Congratulations Scott on this accomplishment.
