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


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 at various companies—Trimble Navigation, Stanford Telecom/Newbridge Networks/Alcatel (yes, we were bought out twice!), nBand Communications, and ECM.

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.
