Research Statement

My primary interest covers both economic and business history. The second area is contemporary business economics. I am concerned with how real-world businesses use economics and strategic management and react to economic conditions. The third area is applied institutional economics. The fourth area is the economic organization of violence. Communicating economics is my last research interest. I am interested in the way economists persuade each other, teach students and talk to the public.
