Biography

Mark Moore is a Senior Lecturer at the Beedie School of Business at Simon Fraser University. He received his PhD in Economics from Columbia University in the City of New York.  He teaches Managerial Economics for the Executive MBA, Management of Technology MBA, and for the full-time and part-time MBA programs. He also teaches this course for the GDBA (online) program, and for the BBA program. He has supervised MBA projects for the EMBA program and for the Learning Strategies Group. He has taught strategy for the BBA program from time to time.

Prior to coming to SFU, Mark taught business and economics at the University of British Columbia, Colgate University and Columbia University. He was also employed by the Bank of Canada in Ottawa, where he conducted research on monetary policy, international portfolio and direct investment flows, and options pricing methods; and as a consultant to Bankers Trust Company in New York, where he performed risk modelling and analysis of the loan portfolio.

Marks's current research is on policy options for governments attempting to share in the profits of non-renewable extractive resources, and on the treatment of risk in public project and regulatory evaluation.  He has published several papers on the modelling and estimation of the appropriate social discount rate for use in cost-benefit analysis. He has also published a cost-benefit study of the consequences for consumers, government and shareholders of the privatization of Canadian National, a welfare analysis of the 1996-2001 Canada-US softwood lumber dispute, and a paper on local mixed enterprises.
