Bill RieberTitle, department and job responsibilities: I’m a professor of economics in the College of Business. I teach microeconomics, macroeconomics and international economics.

Years at Butler: 22 years

Most memorable academic experience(s) at Butler: Being a part of a growing institution where students, faculty and staff are partners in learning; specifically teaching the first course in economics that students take in their University career.

Projects/research you’re currently involved with: Aspects of the Greek economy – the business cycle theories of Friederich A. von Hayek and the connection between economics and accounting (with Dr. James Sander).

What current intellectual or creative question are you thinking about these days: Whether Greece should exit the Euro area and have its own currency.

What do you enjoy most about teaching: Engaging students in a process where answers are not given to specific questions but instead providing students the analytical tools to allow them to do their own thinking, given that the world is filled with uncertainty and ambiguity.
