I received my B.B.A. (1957) and M.S. (1960) from the University of Portland and my Ph.D. (1966) from the University of Maryland. I taught at Multnomah College, Portland, Oregon (1958-60): Catholic University, Ponce, Puerto Rico (1960-61); Trinity College, Washington, D.C. (1961-64); The American University, Washington, D.C. (1964-75); and since 1975 at the University of Notre Dame. I was Chair of the Economics Department from 1975 to 1984.

My teaching in the Economics Department included Introductory Economics, Economics and Ethics, Theory and Method in Political Economy, and a variety of one credit colloquia. For the Kroc Peace Institute, I taught a course on Economic Theory for Non-Economists.

My major research areas are economic development, economic ethics, and economic methodology. I have published over 140 articles and reviews in both professional journals and more popular venues in addition to a number of books. My recent research has been on moral values and the economy. My present work, a book entitled Was the Good Samaritan a Bad Economist? focuses on how my faith has impacted my view of economics and how my work as an economist challenged my faith.
