About me

I’m James Campbell, currently a Lecturer in the Economics Department at UC Berkeley and on leave from my appointment as an Assistant Professor at Providence College. I used to be at University of Toronto and Brown University. My research is on networks, information, innovation, and online markets. You can find links to my academic and other writing by clicking here.

This is my personal page to share stuff I like, and to write about the real world and made up worlds. I predict I’ll write about economics, politics, academia, baseball, pinball, restaurants, cocktails, music, TV, and flaky ideas.

You can get my CV in pdf format by clicking here.

You can also find me on Twitter @jamesdcamp.

Here’s what my mind looks like when someone says “to an economist, this is irrational!”:
