Jason Samuel Brent
Adjunct Assistant Professor

Jason Brent received his MS in Economics from UNC Chapel Hill in 2017, where his research specialization was human capital development. He is a permanent fellow at Duke's Center for History of Political Economy (HOPE), where he coordinates community and institutional partnerships. An award-winning teacher, Jason offers courses in the History of Economic Thought and The Uses of Economics within the Duke Economics Department.

Jason has consulted with several local technology start-ups, a major internet content firm and the North Carolina Justice Center – a Raleigh-based policy-analysis and lobbying shop.

At Fuqua, Jason focuses on working with students to hone sophisticated economic reasoning tools to develop deeper understanding of the nature of specific products, competitive environments, firm structures, and compensation strategies.

His research interests focus on the analysis of historical and contemporary modes of economic reasoning, and the forms of rhetoric that have emerged to support them.
