Brian Solomon's Guide To The Stars: Economics Professor Doug Irwin

Jun 24 2016

Dartmouth has a wealth of experienced professors who lead their respective research fields, while also working closely with students -- inspiring them in the classroom and leading them in laboratory environments. And while at Dartblog we talk frequently about problems that need to be fixed at the College, there are still many bright spots. Our professors deserve more recognition for their achievements. As such, this is one of a series of posts that shines a spotlight on the best professors in Hanover:

Doug Irwin3.jpgDoug Irwin is the John Sloan Dickey Third Century Professor in the Social Sciences in the Department of Economics and an expert in the history and application of trade policy, especially free trade in the United States -- a hot button topic during this 2016 Presidential campaign.

Irwin was a New Hampshire native long before he ever taught economics at the College. After growing up in Durham, he went to the University of New Hampshire for his undergraduate degree, earning a B.A. in political science and graduating magna cum laude for his efforts. While he didn't major in economics, Irwin realized by his junior year that understanding economic theory more deeply was a better path for him to analyze government policy.

Irwin went on to Columbia for his M.A. and Ph.D. in economics. He spent his third year as a junior staff economist at the Council of Economic Advisers in the Reagan administration, where he saw how many people in government followed or ignored the tenets of free trade based on their own interest. After receiving his doctorate in 1988, Irwin took a position at the Board of Governors of the Federal Reserve in its division of international finance. Three years later he started teaching at the University of Chicago Graduate School of Business (known since 2008 as the Booth School of Business). Irwin came home to New Hampshire and Dartmouth in 1997.

Irwin has been a prolific researcher and writer on the subject of free trade, with six books to his name so far. Many of them dive into the history of economic theory and practice. His 1996 book, Against the Tide: An Intellectual History of Free Trade, explains how the idea of free trade has persevered despite pressure against it ever since Adam Smith's day. In Trade Policy Disaster: Lessons from the 1930s and Peddling Protectionism: Smoot-Hawley and the Great Depression, Irwin takes readers back to some of this country's darkest economic days. He also co-authored a paper in the Journal of Economic History that examined the outbreak of protectionist trade policies during the Great Depression, finding that countries still on the gold standard imposed the highest tariff barriers. Through our recent economic downturn, independent national banks that could adjust monetary policy proved more nimble in providing economic stimulus.

Here Irwin talks about the effects of the protectionist Smoot-Hawley Act:

All of this work makes Irwin one of the top researchers at the College. According to Google Scholar, he has nearly 9,000 individual citations and an h-index of 46.

Irwin has argued for free trade policies in the popular media as well. Most recently, he wrote an article for Foreign Affairs that discussed the "age-old tradition" of free trade-bashing in presidential campaigns -- as well as the unique nature of today's "bipartisan bombardment" from Donald Trump to Bernie Sanders. He also has written op-eds for The New York Times, Wall Street Journal, and Financial Times.

At Dartmouth, Irwin currently teaches Economics 39: International Trade, where he is known for giving out four-colored pens embossed with the name of the course, and Economics 79: The Clash of Economic Ideas. He also serves as co-director of the Political Economy Project (PEP), an educational initiative that he founded with Professors Meir Kohn and Russ Muirhead. PEP has its own professors; hosts guest speakers; and Irwin, Kohn and Muirhead invite students to participate in regular Monday-night dinners and reading groups.

Addendum: The strength of Irwin's character as a teacher is perhaps best summed up by a story that Dartblog has previously noted. When Canadian high school student Jonathan Pedde reached out to dozens of economics professors at different universities to which he was considering applying, only one professor responded to his queries and agreed to meet with him. Irwin came to campus on a Saturday afternoon to do so. Pedde was accepted at the College, matriculated with the Class of 2014, and later won a Rhodes Scholarship.

Chaos in Spending and Personnel

Jun 23 2016

One can glean a great deal of information from the want ads. Who knew that Phil Hanlon's vision (Ha!) included the College embarking on "the largest program of strategic investment in its history":

Vice President for Presidential Initiatives Comp.jpg

I have never seen any announcement to this effect, nor read any hard number in the College's own press releases.

That said, how the College is going to bring in all the money that it hopes to raise in the capital campaign is beyond me. As we have seen, cash is going out a lot faster than it is coming in, so much so that the administration has had to go to the capital markets to raise $250 million in a bond offering. And the formal announcement of the campaign itself seems to have been delayed until Phil's fourth or even fifth year in office. Silence regarding the total goal of the campaign is not a sign of successful fundraising, despite the administration's protestations that all is going swimmingly.

Behind the scenes, the Advancement Office is still in turmoil. As we have also noted, working for Bob Lasher '88 is no picnic; three high-ranking managers reporting to Lasher have left recently their positions after short tenures at the College:

Michael Kiefer3.jpgFirst to go was Vice President for Presidential Initiatives and Principal Gifts Michael Kiefer:

From: Advancement Business Operations
Date: Tuesday, March 8, 2016 at 1:02 PM
Subject: Staff Update
This announcement is sent on behalf of Bob Lasher

Our colleague, Michael Kiefer, has expressed a desire to live in the Boston area where he plans to join his wife, Carol, his daughter and son-in-law, and his new grandchild, Oliver, after almost two years of living apart from his family. Working toward this goal while retaining Michael's talents on behalf of Dartmouth Advancement, I'm pleased to report that he will assume a new post in Presidential Initiatives and Principal Gifts (PIPG) as Senior Philanthropic Advisor. This change will take place on Wednesday, June 1, 2016. He will continue to lead the PIPG program until that time.

As we make this change, I want to note that Michael's work reflects a real commitment to Dartmouth College and President Hanlon's vision. Over the past 18 months he has guided the articulation of this important new program within Dartmouth Advancement and forged strong relationships with a number of Dartmouth's most committed alumni and parents in support of our academic initiatives. We look forward to seeing Michael continue to build a strong practice within PIPG, devoting 100 percent of his time to frontline fundraising once the spring term concludes.

We will launch a search for a Vice President of Presidential Initiatives and Principal Gifts imminently.

So Kiefer misses his grandchild and his family, does he? (Ha!, again.) He wasn't even in the job for two years, having begun work on September 2, 2014. His press release noted at the time that he "plans to reside in Hanover with his wife, Carol Solomon, an art historian and curator." Maybe he could not find a house, or maybe he saw that working for Bob Lasher was not something on which he was willing to bet longterm.

By the way, the help wanted ad above is part of the College's effort to replace Kiefer

Ann McElwain.jpgThe next staffer to flee the unhappy Advancement office is Executive Director of Leadership Giving Ann McElwain. On July 1 she will become the chief development officer at the Carnegie Institution for Science. Like Kiefer, she was a senior member of the fundraising team, and her departure erases the results of several years of relationship-building with major donors -- she began working at the College less than three years ago in September 2013.

Patricia Jackson1.jpgFinally, though Patricia Jackson's LinkedIn page still lists her as Bob Lasher's Chief of Staff (having assumed the role in May 2014), today she is no longer in that job. An undated page on the Dartmouth-Hitchcock website describes her current position as Interim Vice President for the Geisel/Dartmouth-Hitchcock Joint Development Office.

Alert readers of this space will recall that on October 1, 2014 we reported that both Jackson and Michael Kiefer were hired to backstop an obviously inexperienced and temperamental Bob Lasher. The short time that they spent in their positions speaks to the impossibility of working with Lasher. In the same post in 2014 we wrote, "Rumors are circulating that a good many Development officers have resum├ęs out with other institutions." We weren't wrong.

At the start of his capital campaign Phil has an ongoing problem in Advancement. Is he manager enough to do something about it?

The Next Dean of the Faculty

Jun 22 2016

The search for the next Dean of the Faculty is not going to be an easy one. Based on their comportment to date, Phil and Carolyn would just as well have nothing to do with the College's professors -- after three and two years respectively in town, they have yet to systematically make the rounds of monthly departmental and program meetings to introduce themselves and listen to professors' thoughts. I guess that is how things are done at Michigan (43,625 students) and Vanderbilt (12,686 students), but in homey Hanover (6,350 students), such behavior comes across as aloofness. Ignoring the faculty, though the President and the Provost talk endlessly about postdocs and cluster hires, is one reason why many professors believe that "Phil and Carolyn think we are a bunch of idiots." To say the least, that's not a good way to build the social capital needed to support future academic initiatives (if any are actually planned).

From where is the new Dean to come? One faculty member argued for an insider, given the College's unique profile:

As I've perhaps said to you before, what has distinguished Dartmouth is its unique positioning as a (national) research college. We are not a research university (HYP), nor are we a college (Amherst; Swarthmore). We aspire to a faculty with a national research presence and whose members are excellent teachers.

As one who came up through the ranks at Dartmouth, I would say that it's very, very difficult to understand that combination of talents unless one has struggled to attain it. All of our recent deans fulfill that qualification.

I am very hard pressed to understand how someone coming from the outside, whether a research university or a college, can have the experience needed to develop and nurture such a faculty. I suppose it's not impossible to find such a person, but I have my doubts.

The first place to look for a qualified insider would be in the ranks of past and present Associate Deans of the three academic divisions, but it is a testimony to President Wright/Kim/Folt/Hanlon's fear of strong people that the talent pool here is very thin. As Steve Job's axiom goes: "A people hire A people; B people hire C people."

Yet there are several members of the faculty who possess the requisite scholarly and teaching credentials, along with the necessary people skills, to function effectively as the Dean of the Faculty in the Dartmouth tradition. However the consensus seems to be that these people are all white men. Heaven forfend. Of course, I won't list names. No need to put the mark of Cain on anyone. 

Given that Phil and Carolyn are both pasty white, they might well lean towards the choice of a women, if not one of color. Might we risk being burdened for five years with slow-moving sycophant Denise Anthony, a sociologist at the beck and call of Carol Folt and Carolyn Dever? Need I say more?

As we pointed out at the time, Phil tipped his hand at a recent faculty meeting regarding his preferences:

My history in dean searches is probably relevant here. In my day I have conducted nine dean searches, all of them national searches. In every case I insisted that the search process generate a deep, talented, diverse pool of internal and external candidates from which to choose. In five of those cases I hired an internal candidate; in four of them I hired an external candidate. Of the nine, only two of the deans I hired were white males; four of them were people of color. So, that sort of tells you what I am looking for in the search... [Emphasis added]

Make no mistake; the choice of our next Dean of the Faculty is a critical one. Research university types like Phil and Carolyn are doing their best to gut the sense that Dartmouth is an intimate academic community of teacher/scholars. Bringing a big-university Dean to Hanover (no matter what that person's race or gender), one who sends out the message that teaching has no value when it comes time for tenure decisions and annual raises, will lead to a further decline in the College's historic strengths. Not a good thing -- remember that the next U.S. News rankings come out in early September. If it isn't ugly this year, it will be in the next one. The College is in freefall now.
