Welcome to the homepage of Paul N. Thompson, Assistant Professor of Economics in the School of Public Policy at Oregon State University.


My research interests include public economics, economics of education, and urban economics.  My current research focuses on state policies that target fiscally troubled school districts and local governments and equality/efficiency tradeoffs in state school finance systems.
