Gary Libecap came to the Bren School in 2006 after more than twenty years at the University of Arizona, Tucson, where, in addition to teaching business, law, and economics, often in a natural resource context, he developed and directed the nation’s top-ranked entrepreneurship program. His interdisciplinary focus and expertise in issues related to entrepreneurship and sustainable business practices led to his critical role in developing the Eco-Entrepreneurship focus, a joint venture between the Bren School and the School of Engineering. Professor Libecap’s current research is focused on the legal, economic, and policy aspects of water allocation in the western United States. He has been president of the Economic History Association, the Western Economics Association International, and the International Society for the New Institutional Economics, and he holds high-level appointments at several top institutions around the country.
Dr. Matcheck is an Assistant Professor of Economics at Northwood University. He earned his Ph.D. from Cornell University: his dissertation and research interests are in the economics of property rights and environmental quality. Matcheck is an advisor for Students in Free Enterprise and a developer of economist trading cards (as seen in The Wall Street Journal and Dave Barry’s Christmas Gift Guide).
This event is made possible through the support of the John Templeton Foundation.
