When I’m not conducting research or teaching about economics, I like to spend time with my beautiful wife Terry and our two lovable English bulldogs named Oligopoly (“Ollie”) and Monopoly (“Polly”).


My additional interests include:


Yes, I also have an affinity for old cars. Below are some pictures of me with my street rod. You can click on them to get a closer look (notice the ECON 201 license plate).

My Little Deuce Coupe & '49 (Mercury) Street Rod

“Just a little deuce coupe with a flat head mill
But she’ll walk a Thunderbird like it’s standin’ still
She’s ported and relieved and she’s stroked and bored.
She’ll do a hundred and forty with the top end floored

She’s my little deuce coupe
You don’t know what I got.”
