Dr Rex A McKenzie

Senior Lecturer in Economics

About

I was trained at the New School for Social Research in New York USA. My 2006 PhD thesis was entitled Three Essays in the Political Economy of the English Speaking Caribbean. I have held Lecturer, Assistant Professor and Senior Researcher posts in Economics at the University of Technology, Kingston, Jamaica, Purchase College, SUNY, New York, USA and the University of Witwatersrand, Johannesburg, South Africa. Before academia I was a professional Foreign Exchange Dealer for sixteen years and this professional experience connects to my research activities in the area of Global Political Economy.  This ranges from the Political Economy of Development, to the Political Economy of Contemporary Finance.

I am currently supervising three PhD students; Erbil Celik - Utility, Value and Classical Political Economy, Amina Gomri - The Technology Gap & Industry Development: The Case of Turkey and Muhammet Ozdemir - Loan-to-Deposit Ratio and Financial Stability: An Endogenous Money Approach.
