I am a historian of American capitalism working on the twentieth-century consumer goods economy. I research critical turns in touristic planning from the New Deal to the present.
Economic planning and its many failures. My current focus is Walt Disney parks and resorts, with emphasis on the company's large-scale domestic investments. More broadly, I am interested in histories of economic thought, economic geography, public-private partnerships, and architectures of commercial consumption.
