This blog consists of occasional links and bits of commentary—some humorous, others more serious, often a combination—by David F. Ruccio. I used to teach in the Department of Economics at the University of Notre Dame (until it was split and renamed) and then in the Department of Economics and Policy Studies (until it was dissolved). I am now a Professor of Economics “at large” as well as a member of the Higgins Labor Studies Program and Faculty Fellow of the Joan B. Kroc Institute for International Peace Studies. I was the editor of the journal Rethinking Marxism from 1997 to 2009. My Notre Dame page contains more information.
As faculty speech is being increasingly circumscribed, here’s the unfortunately necessary disclaimer: the ideas and opinions expressed in the main entries to this blog are my own and do not necessarily reflect those of my employer or any other organization with which I am affiliated.
