My teaching interests include introductory economics, labor economics, comparative economic systems and economic transition, and U.S. economic history.

My research interests include the pedagogy of introductory economics, affirmative action, and economic development in Africa. I'm a co-author with Prof. Peter Hess of Principles of Economics: An Analytical Approach (West Publishing), and Economic Development: Theories, Evidence, and Policies (Dryden Press).

I have been active in Advanced Placement Economics since the inception of the program in 1988. From 1998 to 2005, I served as chief faculty consultant for AP Economics. I currently serve as the co-chair of the AP Macroeconomics Test Development Committee and offer frequent workshops for AP economics teachers.
