More Fed Fellow Fun

by John Q on June 16, 2004

I’ve been enjoying a visit from my friend and co-author Simon Grant for the last couple of days. We’ve been working on fairly abstruse aspects of the economics of uncertainty, though with an eye to practical applications to issues like an analysis of the precautionary principle.

However, we downed tools this afternoon when it was announced that Simon has been awarded a Federation Fellowship. This is only the second such Fellowship in Economics, mine being the first.

Obviously, I’m very happy about this, and particularly about the fact that it will bring Simon back to Australia (he’s currently at Rice university in the US).

“a Federation Fellowship”

Ooh, is this the one where he gets to spend one year on Earth, and a follow-up on Vulcan?

I’m jealous :)

So is this going to be the big long-awaited paper on consequentialism and expected utility?

(by the way, like giles, I don’t actually have a gmail account but am pretending to in order to look cool).

DD, this is going to be the big long-awaited paper on unforeseen/unconsidered contingencies in decision theory.
