Handing out in-depth analysis & folksy wisdom in equal measure.
My goal is to give you good people some objective and pragmatic explanations of the economic issues facing our great nation today. I don't give two hoots whether an idea is from a Republican, Democrat, Whig, Presbyterian, Buddhist, Rastafarian, or even one of them Eastern dandies. If it's logical and reasonable, then I'm as happy as a weasel in a hen house to tell you all about it.

Informational videos (on the youtubes)
Be sure to check out my YouTube channel, where I post both Cowboy Economist insights
and classroom lectures. I wouldn't worry so much about the latter as I have to pretend I'm a
boring college professor in those. Apparently, I'm pretty good at that.

Pragmatic ponderings (hosted by Forbes.com)
The good folks at Forbes.com have been hosting a blog for me for going on a decade.
There, you will find my musings about such issues as the debt and deficit (turns out the US can't
possibly go bankrupt--of course not, we're AMERICA!), Social Security solvency (only the
politicians could destroy it), and the economics discipline (I'm embarrassed to say that it
contributed to the Financial Crisis of 2008).
I have a lot of thoughts while I'm riding the fence line, looking for strays and
rustlers. I've written some of these down in book form.
I wrote this one to explain different schools of thought in economics and why we should
be allowing students to learn more about them. It's a relatively easy read (click on the picture to

I wrote this one to explain how currency prices fluctuate. It's fairly technical and not an
easy read (click on the picture to go to the Amazon page):

Scholarly Stuff (on ResearchGate.com)
When I'm not writing for decent, common folk, I sometimes put pen to paper and hash
it out with those Eastern dandies. I believe I have--in my humble opinion--been able to
masquerade as one of them quite well. My favorite topics are exchange rates, business cycles,
and why they are dandies.
When I wind down in the evening with a cold mug of beer next to our roaring fireplace,
I sometimes like to get on my TRS-80 computer and communicate with my friends and
colleagues via the World Wide Web. Please find below links to my Cowboy Economist
