Steven Craig is a professor of economics at the University of Houston, where he specializes in state and local government economics. His Ph.D. is from the University of Pennsylvania, after undergraduate work at Cornell. His work in the Review of Economics and Statistics analyzes the budgetary impact of education aid, and his recent paper (with Scott Imberman and Adam Perdue) analyzes how state accountability standards have influenced education budgets. Prof. Craig’s other recent work extends his research into low income assistance by analyzing the political interaction between the three major Medicaid recipient groups, and by examining fiscal copycatting behavior by city governments.
