On July 1, 2016 the BB&T Center for the Study of Capitalism in the Wake Forest University School of Business welcomed Dr. Adam Hyde in the role of Research Assistant Professor. In this capacity he will help organize and further the Center’s research agenda, including its sponsorship of internal and external research projects. He will also assist the teaching of the School of Business’s “Why Business?” course, which, beginning in the Fall of 2016, will become a required prerequisite for all undergraduate Business majors.
Adam received his undergraduate degree in economics from Franklin & Marshall College, and his MA and PhD in economics from the University of Virginia. He is an Applied Microeconomist trained in the fields of public policy, industrial organization, and labor economics with special interest in the Economics of Health Care.
A devoted father of two young boys, Adam spends much of his spare time trying to mold them into happy, productive, and virtuous citizens. This includes teaching them about everything from rational economic decision making to religion, philosophy, camping, music, painting, lacrosse, the Chicago Cubs, and the best way to cook a pork shoulder.
