The Economics Department welcomes our newest faculty member – Dr. Anders Fremstad.


Anders is a new assistant professor of economics at CSU.  His interest in economics was first sparked by debates on issues like living wages and free trade.  After earning his B.S. in International Political Economy at Georgetown University, he spent a year volunteering at UPAVIM, a women’s cooperative in Guatemala City.  Prof. Fremstad received his Ph.D. in Economics at the University of Massachusetts – Amherst.   He is broadly interested in economic inequality and environmental sustainability.  His current research focuses on the economic and environmental impacts of online platforms associated with the sharing economy.  This fall Prof. Fremstad will be teaching Recent Economic Thought (Econ 474).
