Teaching Philosophy:

    Economics as a discipline provides infrastructure for asking and answering everyday questions. Thus, economics teaching must focus not only on the content of economic models, but also on how to extend economic intuition into one's day-to-day decision making. Teaching should emphasize the connections between intuition, theory, and empirics. Then, when a particular model is being examined, attention should be paid to the limitations, assumptions, and scope of the analysis. While a focus on economic content (market structure, economic policies) has practical importance, a careful economic approach is essential.
