I’ve taught courses on the politics and law of international trade (graduate) and understanding the role of economists / economics in public policy (undergraduate).
Syllabi and teaching reviews available upon request.
Below is an illustrative outline of two courses I’ve led or co-led.
Syllabus for Thinking Economically: The Economics Behind Economic Policy (2019)
Economics has become the most influential social science discipline in policymaking, with economists permeating public policy discourse. Your semester in Washington is designed to give you an introduction to the ways of the Capitol and the Capital. As such, a vital part of your training – and the goal of this class – will be to become an informed consumer and translator of economic arguments. This entails understanding economic terms and definitions, the models and tools used by economists, when and how the government might intervene in the market, and what the economics are behind economic policies. Most weeks are organized around a key economics-related legislation or initiative, which we use as an entry point into understanding and comparing three different political economy perspectives: libertarianism, liberalism, and structuralism.

Week 1 (Sept. 3): Macroeconomics and economic measurement
In this class, we’ll look at macroeconomics: the study of the economy as a whole. What components make up the economy, and how do they relate to one another?

Week 2 (Sept. 10): Three Economic Perspectives: Libertarianism, Liberalism, and Structuralism
Policy-making is all about what the state should do or not do. This week, we will look at three major intellectual frameworks informing why policymakers “intervene” (or do not intervene) in markets. These include libertarianism, liberalism, and structuralism – perspectives we will return to for the rest of the semester. Ideas associated with each of these perspectives include, respectively: perfect markets, market failure, and fictitious commodities.

Contemporary Trade Policy Issues
University of New Hampshire
The goal of this course is to develop a familiarity with several major aspects of contemporary debates around international trade policy. Rather than delving into methodological and measurement debates that would be common in a graduate economics course on trade, this study focuses instead on the legal and political issues with which a social or think-tank entrepreneur dealing with real-world trading and foreign policy should be acquainted.
The five reading units include:
1. What have been the major historical developments in U.S. post-war trade strategy? What are the primary functions of institutions the U.S. helped create?
2. How has India engaged in this architecture and developed its own trade strategy?
3. What have been the primary approaches decisionmakers at the GATT and WTO have used to regulate technical standards in products?
4. Based on the long-running GATT/WTO disputes on tuna, what policy space does the U.S. have to block imports of seafood from its trading partners? What defensive and offensive steps could a social entrepreneur take to secure U.S. market access in the face of possible regulatory objections?
5. How can trade policy be an opportunity or challenge for addressing climate change? How can a social entrepreneur make the affirmative case that their trading plans will help address global warming?
