More About the Author
McGuire is an economist with a strong historical bent. He is Adjunct Research Professor at the University of Akron in Ohio (but lives in California). He has previously been on the faculty at Ball State University in Muncie, IN and held visiting appointments at Ohio State, Washington State, and the Universities of California at Berkeley, Davis, Los Angeles, and Santa Cruz. He is an avid hiker, runner, skier, traveler, and wine collector who spends a week each spring skiing in Colorado, two to three weeks each summer in Europe, and also travels otherwise during the year but is always home for the (winter) holidays in Southern California.
McGuire's research interests are multi-faceted, examining economic development issues that integrate economic, historical, and microbiology perspectives, as well as examining various constitutional issues that integrate economics, history, and politics. His most recent book is _Parasites, Pathogens, and Progress: Diseases and Economic Development_ (MIT Press 2011).
