Joseph Connors
Assistant Professor, Department of Economics, Donald R. Tapia School of Business, Saint Leo University


I am an assistant professor of economics in the Donald R. Tapia School of business at Saint Leo University. I teach microeconomics, macroeconomics, behavioral economics, and econometrics. I run the IFWE reading group here at Saint Leo and help Frank Orlando run the IFWE speaker series.

Along with Pamela Cooper, I am the co-creator of Oikonomia: Economics for Life and Purpose course for the homeschool market.

I currently live in Tampa, FL. My life as an economist is a second career for me. Before economics and academia I was an electrical engineer in the San Francisco Bay Area.

I enjoy teaching at Saint Leo University. My current research interests are: 1) how economic and political institutions impact the poor in the developing world and 2) the political economy of rent seeking. Other areas of interest are public economics and financial and monetary economics.
