Courses I Teach

  • Discrimination in the Labor Market - Econ 5140
    This class examines the issue of discrimination in US labor markets from both a theoretical perspective and an empirical perspective. The focus is on racial discrimination (especially discrimination against African Americans) and gender discrimination. However, we examine the experiences of other ethnic groups, as well as discrimination along age, religion, or other lines, through additional readings and research projects.
  • Econ 1740 - US Economic History
    This course examines the economic and social history of the United States from the colonial period to the present day. While the course is broad in scope, we will direct special attention to particular topics. These topics include changes in US labor markets, changes in living standards (and their measurement), the history of female and minority labor, and the recent growth of income inequality in the US. It fulfills the university's American Institutions (AI) requirement.
  • Econ 3100 - Labor Economics
    How do people decide how many hours they wish to work, what jobs they wish to hold, and how much education or training they should acquire to achieve these goals? How do firms decide how many workers, and what kinds of workers, to hire? How do these decisions by workers and firms combine to produce employment and unemployment levels and income distribution? What is job discrimination? What causes it, how do we measure it, and how do we remedy it? How can an understanding of the labor market improve our understanding of the problem of poverty? These are the kinds of questions we will address in this class. We will focus primarily on neoclassical models of the labor market, but we will be attentive to criticisms of these models.
  • Econ 5470 - American Industrialization and Development
    In this class, we will study growth and change in the US economy from the colonial period to the present. While this course is to a great degree a "survey," or a broad overview, of these issues, we will give particular emphasis to the study of labor markets, demography, the standard of living, and economic inequality. This course fulfills the university's upper division communication/writing (CW) requirement.
  • Econ 7400 - Economic History
    The purpose of this course is to introduce doctoral students to the study of US economic history. We examine some classic debates in the field as well as emerging areas of research. It is hoped that students will gain insight into both the topics under study and the methods that economic historians use to study them.
