Dr Paul Fisher, a visiting professor at Richmond University in finance and economics, has had a busy October 2016. Early on (October 5th) he presented a paper to the Business School’s Wellbeing Research Centre (click here for more information about the Centre and its recent activities) entitled ‘What should we (not) expect from central bankers?’ Dr Fisher was quizzed by both students and faculty at this lively event on central banking effectiveness, policy choices, and the Bank of England’s work in supporting the UK economy in the run up and the aftermath of Brexit. The text of the paper he delivered is available on the website of the Briefing Notes in Economics under the following link: http://www.richmond.ac.uk/bne/documents/IssueNo92-Fisher_000.pdf
Later on in the month he was hosted by the Climate Alliance of Australia and gave two keynote addresses in Melbourne and Sydney. The link here offers more details on this engagement. Please scroll down to the end of the suggested page to listen to an interview Dr Fisher gave on the topic of financial risks linked to climate change.
An interview with Dr Fisher on this topic appears in The Saturday Paper here.
We wish Dr Fisher a quieter November 2016!
