Don Cox Professor of Economics


My main interest these days is connecting the economics of the family with evolutionary and reproductive biology, replacing the generic "parent-child" or "person 1/person 2" family members with their real world counterparts: mothers, fathers, sons and daughters (and maternal grandmothers, and paternal uncles, etc.). I also have a longstanding interest in the motivation for private intergenerational transfers.

I created this website to make it easier for people to locate and access my work.
