I am visiting research professor of economics, University of Missouri-Kansas City, Missouri, and senior research fellow, Center for Economics and the Environment (part of the Hammond Institute for Free Enterprise) and adjunct professor of economics, School of Business and Entrepreneurship, Lindenwood University, St Charles, Missouri.
Prior to July 2013, I served 25 years in the Federal Reserve System: five years in Washington, D.C. at the Federal Reserve Board and 20 years in St. Louis. From 1992 through 2000, I supervised the research automation function in St. Louis, including supervising the conversion of FRED to a database-driven CSS-based system starting in 1998 and hiring all the developers working on FRED. At St. Louis, I also developed the modern RAM adjustment for the St. Louis adjusted monetary base and adjusted reserves (with Robert Rasche), and developed modern Divisia monetary index numbers for the United States (with Barry Jones).
I have taught courses, including money & banking, managerial economics, econometrics, micro and macroeconomic theory, and a variety of MBA-level courses, at a number of universities, including Michigan State University, Ohio State University, Virginia Tech, the University of Michigan, and Lindenwood University.
