Since 2000, I have been associated
with the Department of Economic at Queen's University and am the
director of the John Deutsch International
Program on Investment Appraisal and
Risk Analysis. Prior to coming to Queen's I taught at Harvard
University from 1972-2000 and continue to be an Institute Fellow
Emeritus of Harvard University. In 1985, I founded the Program on
Investment Appraisal and Management at the Harvard Institute for
International Development (HIID), and was its Director from 1985 to
2000. From 1989 to 1998 I was the Director of International Tax
Program at the Harvard Law School. My main fields of research are
public finance, investment appraisal, and economic development. From
1981 to 1984 while on leave from Harvard University I served as the
Assistant Deputy Minister of Tax Policy and Legislation in the
Department of Finance, Government of Canada. I have also served as
an economic consultant to a number of governments and international
financial institutions, including the governments of the Argentina, Belize,
Bolivia, Chile, Canada, Dominican Republic, India, Indonesia, Kyrgyzstan, Malaysia,
Nepal, Philippines, Sri Lanka, South Africa and United States, and to
international financial institutions such as the World Bank, Asian Development
Bank, African Development Bank, Inter-American Development Bank and the Ford Foundation. My
first degree was a B. Comm. in Economics from Carleton University in
Ottawa. I then completed a M.A. in Economics from the University of
Western Ontario, and a M.A. and a Ph.D. in Economics from the
University of Chicago. (See attached
