Murphy-Economics Seminar: Harry Gorter
The Murphy Institute Economics Seminar series
Professor of Applied Economics and Policy at Cornell University
Each semester The Murphy Institute sponsors a series of seminars organized by the Tulane Department of Economics that provides an opportunity for faculty, researchers, and economists to present their latest research and pressing issues related to topics in economics.
Harry de Gorter, a professor at the Charles H. Dyson School of Applied Economics and Management at Cornell University, teaches and conducts research on the applied welfare economics and political economy of agricultural policy and trade.
Much of his recent work has been on biofuels and agricultural trade reform and the Doha Development Agenda, especially the impact of subsidies and protection on developing countries. His research is both theoretical and empirical, with direct policy implications for governments, international institutions, and non-governmental organizations. Prior to Cornell, he was on faculty at the University of Guelph Ontario and worked for the International Trade Policy Division of Agriculture and Agri-Food Canada in Ottawa. He has long been actively involved in advising many governments and international organizations on issues related to agriculture trade policy and renewable energy, including the World Bank, OECD, IMF, WTO, UNCTAD, Inter-American Development Bank, UN-FAO Rome, California Air Resources Board, EU Commission; USAID; Government of Canada; UNICA Sao Paulo; ICONE Sao Paulo; Cato Institute, UNIGRAINS Paris, Kraft Foods International, ICTSD, and the Swedish International Development Agency.
