Published: 23 June 2010

Southampton economist, Professor John Knowles, has been awarded the Harry G. Johnson Prize by the Canadian Economics Association for the best paper published in the Canadian Journal of Economics in 2009.

The prize Professor John Knowles shared with co-author Professor Nezih Guner of Universitat Autònoma de Barcelona, was for their paper 'Why is the Rate of Single-Parenthood Lower in Canada than in the U.S.? A Dynamic Equilibrium Analysis of Welfare Policies,' which appeared in the February, 2009 issue of the journal.

The Canadian Economics Association awards the Harry G. Johnson Prize each year to the author or authors of the paper judged to be the best paper published in the Canadian Journal of Economics in the preceding calendar year. The prize is named in honour of the distinguished Canadian economist who produced a large quantity of highly influential research particularly but not exclusively in international finance, international trade theory, and macroeconomics.
