What I did in the crisis….

So the crisis is now four years old, with the falling into recession of Ireland in september 2008 sounding the clear warning that there were rough times ahead.Somehow or other I (and others) were winkled out of our ivory towers to explain (or not) what was going on. There are  pro and con on whether and how academics should engage with the public debates (my view is we should  and should do so however we feel most comfortable), but regardless of the media, the day job goes on.

 

 

So in the last four years  I have it seems published 21 peer reviewed papers, uploaded 30 working papers to SSRN presented over 40 conference presentations, examined 4 phd theses as external examiner, put 5 students through as PhD, created a masters programme which has graduated 300+ graduates, taken over the editing of two journals, edited one book, started (and stopped) a spinout, taught 14 modules at undergrad and 10 at postgraduate level, run 4 conferences with over 1000 delegates, sat on three US tenure committees as (virtual) external and formed a close working relationship with the london precious metal community.

And then there is the journalism which i think is part day job – i try to write informed by recent research. In the last year alone I have filed 25,000 words with the Examiner. What have I said? See the wordle below

    A comment deleted from someone who said they expected it to be. Why disappoint…
    Tell ya what Gulfram, if you want to critique go ahead but give an email to which discussion can also go. No hiding.
