 Economics Faculty: A Productive Research Year

Friday, Apr. 22, 2011

The Leavey School of Business Economics faculty have had a productive research year.  

Associate Professor Helen Popper was awarded a research grant of £7448 (just under $12,000) from the British Academy’s Grants Committee to study the Stability of Exchange Rate Regimes.  

Adjunct Professor Fred Foldvary taught economics in a Summer Camp of International Economists at Northeaster University in Shenyang, China last July.  The program included lectures and small group discussion sessions, a format that is very unusual in China and excited the students.  In the past year, Foldvary has authored ten entries for a forthcoming Encyclopedia of Global Justice.  

Associate Professor Dongsoo Shin co- wrote a paper with A. Finkle titled “Disregarding the Attorney’s Advice: An Agency Perspective” that was published in the Review of Law and Economics in 2010.  He presented another paper, “Hierarchical Structure and Dynamic Incentives,” at the 2010 Annual Meeting of European Association for Research in Industrial Economics in Istanbul, Turkey.  

Adjunct Professor Shireen Alazzawi’s paper “Multinational Corporations and Knowledge Flows: Evidence from Patent Citations” will be published in the April 2011 issue of Economic Development and Cultural Change.  

Adjunct Professor Subha Muthukrishnan’s paper “Vehicle Ownership and Usage Charges” was published in the November 2010 issue of Transportation Policy.

Adjunct Professor John Rasmus recently wrote a chapter titled “Economic Theory and Epic Recession” for the Elgar Publishers collection that will appear next month titled The First Great Recession of the 21st Century: Competing Explanations.  He also has a forthcoming new book titled Obama’s Economy: Recovery for the Few that will be published by Palgrave- Macmillan and Pluto Press.
