The purpose of studying economics is not to acquire a

set of ready-made answers to economic questions,

but to learn how to avoid being deceived by economists.

I've been at Keene State College since 1991.  I enjoy teaching a wide variety of courses and grappling with complex and controversial ideas, often in the spirit of the Joan Robinson quote at the top of this page.   I currently serve as Chair of the Economics & Political Science Department and the Coordinator for the Social Science major.

This fall I'm teaching Macroeconomics (ECON 201), and Intermediate Macroeconomics (ECON 301).  In the spring 2006 semester I will be teaching Macroeconomics (ECON 201), and Environmental Economics (ECON 340).
