Economics professors and senior research associate wins prestigious award honoring commitment to graduate students
Each year, UNH selects a small number of its outstanding faculty for special recognition of their achievements in teaching, scholarship, and service. Awards for Excellence in Teaching are given in each college and school, and University-wide awards recognize public service, research, teaching, and engagement. The Graduate Faculty Mentor award is designed to honor a faculty member whose commitment to excellence in graduate student training has contributed significantly to graduate students’ professional development.
Michael D. Goldberg, the Todd H. Crockett Professor of Economics in the UNH Peter T. Paul College of Business and Economics and a senior research associate at the Institute for New Economic Thinking (INET), was the 2016 recipient of the Graduate Faculty Mentor Award.

Goldberg has written extensively in the fields of International Finance and Macroeconomics and his columns on asset price fluctuations and policy reform have been published by leading newspapers in more than 50 countries. His bestselling books, Imperfect Knowledge Economics: Exchange Rates and Risk (Princeton University Press, 2007) and Beyond Mechanical Markets: Asset Price Swings, Risk, and the Role of the State (Princeton University Press, 2011), both co-authored with Roman Freedman, propose a new approach to macroeconomic modeling that recognizes that the structure of the economy changes at times and in ways that do conform to a probabilistic rule. Beyond Mechanical Markets was a finalist for the 2011 TIAA-CREF Paul A. Samuelson Award.
