Mark Joseph Stelzner
For the last few years, Mark Stelzner has been working on better understanding income inequality in the United States. He has conducted research on the evolution of labor laws during the Gilded Age and over the last forty years, the relationship between labor laws and inequality, the income shares of top earners in the late 1860s, the connection between support for workers and technological change, the evolution of antitrust administration since the 1960s, the link between inequality and politics, and the degree to which Americans have overpaid for private medical care. His work has been featured in the Nation, the Washington Center for Equitable Growth and other venues.
He has taught Introduction to Microeconomics, Introduction to Macroeconomics, Intermediate Microeconomics, Economic Development, Public Economics, Game Theory, and U.S. Economic History.
Mark Stelzner holds a bachelor's degree in physics from Boston University, a master's in global finance, trade and economic integration from the University of Denver Josef Korbel School of International Studies, and a doctorate in economics from the University of Massachusetts.
