Macro- and Micro-Principles of Economics
My current research has centered around explaining differences in publication rates among different groups of economists. I have just finished a paper that compares the publication record of male and female economists who received their PhD in 1985. In the near future I will begin comparing the publication record of the 1985 PhD class to the 1991 PhD class. In addition, I am completing research that examines the various factors that contribute to a student successfully completing the principles of economics courses.
My previous research has included: the production of low-income housing, local taxation, the resource misallocation of bureaus, of cross-hauling and of gift-giving, Laffer curves and amnesty, and the privatization of public-school transportation.
