James Moore

Professor Emeritus of Economics

Education

Ph.D., Economics, University of Minnesota
B.A., Economics, University of Nebraska (Omaha)

Professor Moore's primary teaching interests include microeconomic theory, general equilibrium theory, and the economic theory of public policy. His research interests lie in the areas of general equilibrium theory, the theory of public economics, and the economics of information and organization.

His major publications include "The Existence of 'Compensated Equilibrium' and the Structure of the Pareto Efficiency Frontier," International Economic Review, 16 (1975); "Compensating Variation, Consumer's Surplus and Welfare" (with John S. Chipman), American Economic Review, 70 (1980); "Optimal Decision Processes and Algorithms" (with W. B. Richmond and A. B. Whinston), Journal of Economic Dynamics and Control, 14(2) 375-417 (May 1990); "The Measurement of Aggregate Welfare" (with J. S. Chipman), in: Eichhorn, Wolfgang, ed.: Models and Measurement of Welfare and Inequality, Berlin, Springer-Verlag, pp. 552-92 (1994); "Computational Systems for Qualitative Economics" (with K. Lang and W. Whinston), Journal of Computational Economics, 8, pp. 1-26 (1995); and "Information Processing for a Finite Resource Allocation Mechanism" (with H.R. Rao and A.B. Whinston), Economic Theory, 8, pp. 267-290 (1996).

Professor Moore is a member of the Econometrics Society and the American Economics Association.
