Welcome to my website.  Following the demise of, which I had hosted for over 10 years, I launched this website in 2013. It has a new host, a new look, and a new domain name (
Here you’ll find an academic section with details on my classes, and my research. Currently I am Senior Associate Dean and Associate Dean for Faculty in the College of Arts and Sciences, but I still teach courses for the Economics Department. There’s also a section about the consulting (expert witness) services I offer.
I post frequently to a blog called Ramblings.  Then there are my personal pages, that let me share a little of myself.  You can read about my obsession with my car, bicycles, photography, woodwork and a few other things.  My photography site has been around the web the longest, and is in need of significant updating, I’m afraid.
I hope you find something of interest here.  If you do, please comment via the Facebook and Twitter sharing links–or not.  If you want to say hello directly then email me:  Otherwise, thanks for visiting, and cheers!

My alter-ego: the “94-Rock Economist”

Back in 1992 (anyone remember back that far?) I was asked by TJ Trout, the host of the morning show on KRZZ (94 Rock) to come on his show and talk about the economics of Ross Perot (anyone remember him??) It was election year and Perot was running on many planks, but one was a more business-based understanding of national economics. There was, in particular, real concern about the national debt (boy, if only they’d have known how big it would get 20 years later!) Anyway, I went on the show, and that — as they say — launched my career in radio.

I “appeared” on the radio occasionally with TJ for many years until he retired a couple of years ago (maybe 2012.) During that time I was dubbed “the 94 Rock Economist” and “the Economist to the Stars.” The morning show continued just fine without me, but the guy who hosts it nowdays, Swami Rob, called me up and asked me to come back in to talk about savings and retirement. It was fun, and here’s an audio podcast if your interested.
