Robert E. Wright

Robert E. Wright (born 1969[1] in Rochester, N.Y.) is a business, economic, financial, and monetary historian and the inaugural Rudy and Marilyn Nef Family Chair of Political Economy at Augustana College in Sioux Falls, South Dakota.[2] He is also a research economist at the National Bureau of Economic Research.[3]

Education and research

After graduating from Fairport High School in 1987, Wright took degrees in History from Buffalo State College, where he was a member of the All-College Honors Program,[4] and the University at Buffalo (Ph.D., 1997).[5] Since 2001 he has authored or co-authored six books on early U.S. financial and political history, two about major corporations,[6] one about of the U.S. construction industry, a banking textbook, and a critique of U.S. public policies related to bailouts.[7]

Wright's forthcoming books include an edited volume called Public Money, Private Profit for the Social Science Research Council,[8] and a book on the role the real estate mortgage crisis of the 1760s played in the American Revolution.[9][10][11][12][13][14][15][16][17][18][19][20]

Wright taught at New York University’s Stern School of Business from 2003 until 2009. Before that, Wright taught economics at the University of Virginia,[21] where he worked with Virginia economist Ron Michener in a dispute against Grubb, an economist at the University of Delaware, over the nature of colonial and early U.S. money and monetary systems.[22]
