Dr. Jeremy Jackson is an Assistant Professor in the Department of Agricultural and Applied Economics at North Dakota State University.  He received his Ph.D. in Economics from Washington University in St. Louis where his dissertation, titled "The Political Economics of Earmarked Taxation," was completed with Professor Marcus Berliant as Chair.  Dr. Jackson's research has a focus on strategy as it is applied to topics that lie within the intersection of Public Economics and Political Economy and in Industrial Organization/Regulation. His interests are broad enough to include any topic involving strategic interactions.  Current research topics cover diverse topics such as regulation of gas emissions in the dairy industry, strategic pricing of R&D "use" licenses, the effects of the minimum wage on youth unemployment, personality traits and satisfaction, social capital, economic freedom, and legislative bargaining theory.  Dr. Jackson teaches courses in Microeconomics (201, 341, 741), Public Economics (470/670) and Game Theory and Strategy (440/640).

Dr. Jackson also organizes a lecture series titled "Capitalism and Society" which is supported with grant dollars.  The series draws in speakers who can bring insight into the moral and ethical issues surrounding free markets.
