Joseph Connors
Assistant Professor, Department of Economics, Barney Barnett School of Business and Free Enterprise, Florida Southern College


I am an assistant professor of economics in the Barney Barnett School of Business and Free Enterprise at Florida Southern College. I teach microeconomics, macroeconomics, behavioral economics, and econometrics.

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 Florida Southern College. 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.
