Robert Gmeiner, Ph.D.
Kennesaw State University near Atlanta, Georgia
Department of Economics, Finance, and Quantitative Analysis
I am a visiting assistant professor of economics at Kennesaw State University and an external scholar at The Sunwater Institute. My research is at the intersection of public choice and international trade, and I currently teach several economics courses and business statistics.
Much of my research is on the line between public choice and international trade, with a major project using models from the natural sciences to highlight the effects on economic growth of excessive debt and transactions for financial assets. These models inform my current international trade research. I have also done work on the effect on domestic innovation of protecting intellectual property owned by foreigners. At the present time, I am writing a book on the threats to Western institutions that result from trade with China. I have published articles on topics pertaining to economic regulation, entrepreneurship, and the political influence of special interests and term limits. See my research page for more.
