Steve Slavin has a PhD in economics from New York University and taught economics for 31 years at Brooklyn College, New York Institute of Technology, and Union County College (NJ). He has written 16 math and economics books as well as a short story collection, "To the City, with Love".

His sole claim to fame is having run with Bernie Sanders on the James Madison High School track team, and later becoming his college roommate. As the media's go-to source of information about Bernie's Brooklyn days, I did a bunch of interviews which you can find by googling "Steve Slavin" and "Bernie Sanders."
