Assistant Professor of Economics Chapman Hall 230

Professor Carter received his Ph.D. in Economics from the New School for Social Research in New York City in 2004. His research includes empirical and theoretical inquiries in functional income distribution, Sraffian and Marxian political economy, capital theory, comparative theories of value, distribution and growth, the economics of immigration, and the history of economic thought. He is currently working on (i) the intellectual history of the neoclassical capital theorist C.E. Ferguson; (ii) original research at the Sraffa Archives in Cambridge, U.K.; (iii) developments in the Marxian theory of value and the “problem” of the transformation, with special emphasis on the so-called “New Solution”; (iii) the economics of immigration in the State of Oklahoma regarding the recent passage of anti-illegals legislation; and (iv) empirical tests of convergence in factor shares across advanced economies.
