Vassar College

I am the Elizabeth Stillman Williams Professor of Economics here at Vassar where I have taught for 35 years.   I have also been visiting Professor at UCL, Sciences Po, the Economic University of Varna and Ochanamizu University. 

I was educated at the University of Sussex and Columbia University.  My current interests center on comparative economics and the teaching of economics in a liberal arts curriculum.  This year I am Chair of the Faculty Appointments and Salary Committee and the Faculty Compensation Committee.

In the Fall of 2011 I will be teaching Econ 367: Comparative Economics, Monday and Wednesday 10.30 -11.45am. My office hours during the fall are Monday 1.15 pm to 3.15 pm and Tuesday 10.30am to 12 noon.

The second edition of his book, A New View of Comparative Economics is in print. Perhaps you want to drop in on his comparative systems research website at Vassar.
