Profile

Mike Moffatt is an Assistant Professor in the Business, Economics and Public Policy group at Ivey. An economist by training, Mike's interests relate to the intersection of societal issues, public policy, economic growth, monetary policy and firm level strategy. Mike is particularly focused on regulations relating to environmental issues. How can governments reduce the release of greenhouse gases and volatile organic compounds at the lowest cost to the economy? How should jurisdictions co-ordinate environmental policy as not to act as a deterrent to international trade? What strategies can firms use to shape and comply with environmental regulations? How are new environmental regulations altering the relationships and responsibilities between partners in the supply chain?

In 2005 Mike co-founded Nexreg Compliance Inc., a company that provides consulting services to the chemical industry. Nexreg assists their clients by developing cost-effective strategies for complying with foreign regulations when entering new markets. Mike's client base includes a diverse mix from small businesses to several Fortune 500 companies.

From 2002 to 2010, Mike was the About.com (a division of the New York Times Company) 'Guide to Economics'. By the end of his time at About, Mike's articles were being read over one million times each month, making him the most widely read economist online. Since leaving About.com, Mike has been writing for the Globe and Mail's Economy Lab and the economics blog Worthwhile Canadian Initiative.
