jcohenI am a Canadian political economist.

My research primarily focuses on the relationship between government policy, economic development, and household well-being.  Additional interests include decision theory, Bayesian analysis, comparative-historical research, and the interplay of morality and science in the politics of public policy.

I have taught classes in advanced statistics, research methodology, marketing research, contemporary economic policy, and comparative-historical political economy.

In addition to my research, I am developing systems for producing and integrating short, YouTube-based lectures into classes and training seminars.
