Steven Husted, Professor Emeritus of Economics, came to the University in 1980 and retired in 2017. While on the faculty, his primary teaching assignments were in the area of international economics, at all levels. His recent research interests focused on patterns of trade share behavior, Chinese export growth, and empirical modelling of exchange rates. In addition to his academic research he and Michael Melvin are co-authors of a popular textbook, International Economics, now in its 9th edition. Early in his career at Pitt, Professor Husted served for one year as a Senior Staff Economist on the President's Council of Economic Advisers, where he specialized in trade policy issues. From 1999-2005 he served as Associate Dean for Graduate Studies and Research in the School of Arts and Sciences. During the 2010-2011 academic year, he served as Interim Dean of the University Honors College. In addition to his academic responsibilities he holds the position of Managing Director of EconLit, a comprehensive on-line index of journal articles, books, book reviews, collected volume articles, working papers and dissertations compiled by the American Economic Association. He is an avid golfer and has played at courses on four continents including Pinehurst #2 in North Carolina, the Old Course at St. Andrews in Scotland and Ballybunion in Ireland, where the picture above was taken. He is also addicted to crossword puzzles, especially the cryptic puzzles that appear in the Sunday Times of London. He and his wife, Marie Connolly, enjoy international travel whenever they can manage it. In 1995-96 they spent 7 months in Canberra, Australia at the Australian National University and 5 in Glasgow, Scotland at the University of Strathclyde. During 2008 academic year they spent part of their sabbatical leaves as Visiting Fellows in the Adam Smith Research Foundation and in the Economics Department at the University of Glasgow.
