Former Ireland's governor joins Peterson Institute

Patrick Honohan, governor of the Central Bank of Ireland during 2009–15, has joined the Peterson Institute for International Economics as a nonresident senior fellow.

"Patrick's combination of distinguished research on financial development and his genuine leadership in resolving the Irish and European financial crises as a member of the ECB's governing council is second to none," says Adam Posen, president of the Institute and a former central banker himself.

"Patrick will be the latest addition to what has become now perhaps the best team on monetary and financial policy anywhere, and we are proud to have him on board at the Peterson Institute."

Indeed, Posen seems to have turned the Peterson Institute into a leading central banking think tank.
