My wife says that I am an evangelist, with economics as my religion. I’m not sure this is altogether a good thing! But maybe it explains my enthusiasm for prepping and giving these lectures.

Professor Timothy Taylor is Managing Editor of the prominent Journal of Economic Perspectives, published by the American Economic Association. He earned his Master's degree in Economics from Stanford University.

Professor Taylor has won student-voted teaching awards for his Introductory Economics classes at Stanford University. At the University of Minnesota, he was named a Distinguished Lecturer by the Department of Economics and voted Teacher of the Year by the Master's degree students at the Hubert H. Humphrey Institute of Public Affairs.

He has also edited a wide range of books and reports and published articles on globalization, the new economy, and outsourcing. From 1989 to 1997, Professor Taylor wrote an economics opinion column for the San Jose Mercury-News.


"Professor Taylor made a seemingly difficult course very fun, and very easy to understand with great examples to make the points of the lectures."


"Professor Taylor's lecture style, clear explanations, subtle humor and support of free markets gave me a new knowledge base. This was my first formal economics course and I am grateful to Timothy Taylor for making it a great experience!"


"Professor Taylor is a very engaging lecturer. He really keeps your attention. He has a sense of humor and the course (and each lecture in it) is very well organized. I highly recommend him!"
