To mark Peter Neary's life, economics experts from the European and US IGM panels were asked to express their views on aspects of his work.
Peter Neary's passing in June 2021 was a sad loss for the whole economics research community, which was reflected in the many outlets that wrote about him, his character and his contribution to economics research.
As Peter was a member of IGM's panel of European economics experts, to mark his life and his work both the European and US panel experts were asked to express their views on aspects of his work. They commented on the statements:
- The introduction of even small trade frictions between neighbouring countries can result in significant economic damage, particularly to smaller exporting firms.
- A national economic boom based on natural resources is likely to harm other sectors of the economy, particularly manufacturing firms.
