Dr. Carlisle is emeritus faculty in the Department of Economics, University of Utah, where he taught for 35 years. He has taught courses in economic theory, American Economic History, and Current Economic Problems. One of his favorite fields of interest is the Great Depression of the 1930’s, and the one from 2008 to 2011.

“We’ll discuss the origins of the Great Recession and various processes the economy went through to avoid a greater calamity and promote recovery in the economy and the labor market. We’ll talk about policies as well. We’ll think about the recovery as being on-going and still incomplete.”
