Paulette Goddard Professor of Political Economy

I obtained my Ph.D. from Columbia University in 1976. I have been at NYU since 1980, and I am currently the Paulette Goddard Professor of Political Economy in the Faculty of Arts and Science. I am a Fellow of the Econometric Society, and have served on a number of editorial boards of scholarly journals in economics. I also served as Dean of Social Sciences (1997-2000) and Interim Dean of the Faculty of Arts and Sciences (1998-2000) and as Senior Vice-Provost at New York University. I was the co-editor of the Journal of Economic Theory with Karl Shell during 2000-2005. I work in the areas of economic growth, behavioral economics, wealth distribution, and business cycles.
