Welcome to my site! My name is Slade Mendenhall. I am an economist working at the cross-section of political economy, monetary economics, and law.
In my research, I aim to take a methodologically individualistic, price theoretic approach to the study of economic behavior in both political and market settings, leading me to subjects as wide-ranging as empirical analyses of banking competitiveness and the role of policy in macroeconomic performance to theoretical considerations of autocratic behavior and analytical narratives on the history of war.
My dissertation, which is currently underway, centers upon issues of competitiveness in banking and financial services in recent decades as well as debates surrounding the role of public policy in fostering or restricting competition in those industries.
