Letter from the chair

larry168x210Season’s Greetings and best wishes for 2020! The Economics Department enjoyed another successful year and eagerly looks forward to the coming year and a series of new initiatives we have launched. As a result of the extraordinary and tireless work of my predecessor Larry Christiano, who skillfully balanced the department’s diverse interests and navigated the University’s often Byzantine bureaucracy, I entered my three-year term as chair in September with a solid foundation on which to continue building Northwestern’s reputation as one of the world’s top economics departments. I look forward to telling many of you personally more about developments in Economics at Northwestern as you return to campus in the coming years. Please drop by my office and introduce yourself when you visit. I can guarantee an appropriately cluttered office and a spectacular view of Lake Michigan, but bear in mind that there's very little I can do at this point about that C+ from Mark Witte in Intro to Macro. Best to just move on.
