Associate Professor, Program Chair
PhD in Economics, Colorado State University, 2011
Bret Anderson, Ph.D. is an Associate Professor of Economics at Southern Oregon University and a faculty fellow at the SOU Institute of Applied Sustainability. His research interests include disaster resilience of communities as well as providing targeted valuation analyses.
Earlier in his career Dr. Anderson published several scholarly articles on the subject of global growth and labor market inequalities. However, since the twin crises of the wildfires and pandemic impacted the region, his research, teaching, and community advancement efforts have shifted into the areas of disaster readiness and the democratization of the local economy. Professor Anderson considers his expertise as being a facilitator of place-based solutions. To that end, Professor Anderson and several committed community members created the Local Innovation Lab in partnership with Southern Oregon University. The Local Innovation Lab is a community-based, college-to-career mentorship program that aims to empower our future entrepreneurs and leaders. Professor Anderson believes that economics, alongside many of the social sciences, is able to help construct the needed institutional frameworks and narratives that can open our collective imaginations for creating local and sustainable solutions for society’s grand problems.
His work has been published in World Development, Journal of Economic Issues, Politics and Policy, and others. At SOU he teaches all kinds of economics classes, but especially enjoys the introductory sequence, the Senior Capstone Research Seminar, and any course related to economic progress and inclusive growth.
