Professor Arthur Grimes Wins Visiting Professorship For 2013


Auckland Professor Arthur Grimes Wins NZ-UK Link Foundation Visiting Professorship For 2013

Sir Graeme Davies, Chairman of the NZ-UK Link Foundation, has announced the second of two Visiting Professors who will be visiting the UK from New Zealand in 2013 in association with The School of Advanced Study (SAS), University of London.

Professor Arthur Grimes, the second Visiting Professor, is Senior Fellow at Motu Research, Chair of the Board of the Reserve Bank, Chair of the Hugo Group and Adjunct Professor of Economics at the University of Auckland. He will be based at SAS between September and November 2013 and will deliver a public lecture series during this time.

Arthur Grimes said of his selection “I am delighted to be chosen as recipient of the 2013 NZ-UK Link Foundation Visiting Professorship. I completed my PhD in the UK at the London School of Economics under an outstanding group of professors including Sir Mervyn King, Charles Goodhart, Charles Bean, Lord Layard and (recent Nobel Prize winner) Christopher Pissarides. All these professors are now prominent policy-makers and academics in London. They influenced my own thinking hugely during my time at the Reserve Bank of New Zealand. This visit will be an ideal opportunity to analyse and compare experiences in central banking and related policies with these and other leaders in the UK.”

Sir Graeme Davies said “The power of the NZ-UK Link Foundation lies in its ability to link specialists from our two nations in common areas where we can share excellence in research, current theory and policy. We are very proud to announce that Arthur Grimes will be the second Visiting Professor for 2013 and feel that his lectures on Central Banking and Governance will also have an impact on many institutions within the UK. The Visiting Professors were chosen not only for the thoughtful proposals but also because their approaches and work have limitless possibilities of linking New Zealand and the UK on many levels and for years to come. A very important part of the Visiting Professor scheme is the location of the visitors in the School of Advanced Study in the University of London where they will benefit enormously from the excellent research environment of SAS, a national resource of outstanding reputation in the humanities and social sciences. ”

Gordon Campbell: Classics - Tales From Moominvalley
Can’t speak for the reading end of it but the Moomins ( or maybe the story about Margaret Wise Brown) were the most enjoyable subject to think about and write about during these whole first 50 issues of Werewolf. For that reason – and because the Moomins always reward re-reading – I’ve decided to reprint it. The only added element is a link to an interesting hour long documentary about Tove Jansson. More>>
