About the Author

Edward A. Hudson (PhD, Harvard), working with Harvard's Dale Jorgenson, pioneered computable general equilibrium models in the 1970s. He applied these models to understanding the "energy crisis" and to analyzing energy policies. Dr Hudson then moved to strategy consulting, advising corporations and governments in the United States and New Zealand. This included advising on the great deregulation carried out in New Zealand in the 1980s and 90s. He has now returned to researching and writing on economic growth.
