Please join all of us at EconLog in welcoming Chapman University’s Bart Wilson as our newest guest blogger. Wilson brings a keen eye for economic history and human behavior, and we very much look forward to his contributions, starting next week.

Wilson holds the Donald P. Kennedy Endowed Chair in Economics and Law at Chapman, and makes his academic home in the Economic Science Institute. Wilson’s broad fields of specialty are experimental economics and industrial organization. Prior to his position at Chapman, Wilson taught at Nuffield College, Oxford; George Mason University, the University of Alaska, and the University of Arizona. He has won several awards for his research and pedagogical innovations, which include the development of Chapman’s “Humanomics: Exchange and the Human Condition” course. Wilson was also an economist in the Economic Policy and Analysis division of the Federal Trade Commission.

Wilson received his PhD in economics from the University of Arizona in 1997. He currently serves as an Associate Editor for the Southern Economic Journal, the Review of Austrian Economics, and the Review of Behavioral Economics.

Welcome, Bart!
