Adjunct Associate Professor, Rotman School of Management
Peter Dungan is Adjunct Associate Professor of Business Economics, with cross appointments to the Department of Economics and the School of Public Policy and Governance at the University of Toronto. He is also the director of Rotman’s Policy and Economic Analysis Program (PEAP). His research concentration is on computer simulation models of the Canadian and Ontario economies developed with regression techniques.
The models are used to measure the impact on the economy of possible policy changes (for example, the adoption of the Harmonized Sales Tax in Ontario). They also form the backbone of an ongoing program developing both short-term and long-term economic forecasts for Canada and Ontario. Peter was appointed a member of the “Ontario Economic Forecast Council” by the Ontario Finance Minister in 2006.
