I've accepted a new job, beginning in the 2017-18 academic year, as the Stephen A. Jarislowsky Chair in Central Banking in the Economics Department at Western University (a.k.a. the University of Western Ontario), London, Ontario. This is an exciting opportunity for me, but it comes with regrets, as I have to leave a lot behind here in St. Louis. The St. Louis Fed has treated me very well. Some of the best economists anywhere work at the St. Louis Fed, and the institution is run by first-rate people. I'll miss the advice, the economics, and the always-interesting policy work. But I'm very much looking forward to working with my new (and old) colleagues at Western. Special thanks go to Stephen Jarislowsky and the Jarislowsky Foundation for their generous support.
