I am a retired university professor based in Miami Beach, Florida, and I spend my time mainly in research, lecturing and private investment and consulting activity around the world.
I received my PhD in 1971 at 26 years of age from the University of Wisconsin-Madison. But I began working as an Instructor at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology in 1970, about a year before I finished my doctoral thesis. I sorely needed the income.
I left MIT as an Associate Professor in 1978 to take a chair at Harvard University as a Professor of Government. At both Harvard and MIT I specialized in macro-political economy and applied multivariate statistics and econometrics.
