To honour David Dodge’s extraordinary contributions to Canada and his visionary leadership as Chair of CIFAR’s Board of Directors, a prestigious lecture in economics and related topics will be held in his name that addresses questions of importance to the world. Established by CIFAR’s Board of Directors with generous support from Scotiabank, the David Dodge CIFAR Lecture is given by a CIFAR fellow with an outstanding track record of scholarship and contribution.

The inaugural David Dodge CIFAR Lectureship was presented at a luncheon event by Nobel Laureate and CIFAR Senior Fellow George A. Akerlof. His subject was manipulation and deceit in free market economies, based on the findings of his new book, Phishing for Phools (Princeton University Press), co-authored with Nobel Laureate Robert Shiller.
