Early Interest in Economics Inspired Prof’s Career and Research
UT Dallas News Center

When Dr. Gary Bolton started college, inflation was at its highest point in decades. U.S. manufacturing was on the decline. And an oil shortage forced rising gas prices and long lines at the pump.
“As a kid growing up in the ‘70s, I would read the newspaper and wonder why the economy was so messed up,” he said.
Bolton’s interest in the economic conditions as a youth inspired an academic career that has been distinguished by prestigious academic appointments, multiple National Science Foundation grants, dozens of articles in top economic journals and speaking engagements around the world.
Last fall, Bolton, a professor of managerial economics, was named O.P. Jindal Chair and co-director of the Center and Laboratory for Behavioral Operations and Economics in the Naveen Jindal School of Management. He runs the center with Dr. Elena Katok, his wife, an Ashbel Smith Professor of Operations Management.
