Celeste Carruthers is an associate professor in the Haslam College of Business at the University of Tennessee with a joint appointment in the Department of Economics and the Boyd Center for Business and Economic Research. Recent and ongoing projects examine the effect of financial aid on college choices, career and technical education and the consequences of segregated schools in the early 20th-century United States.
“The issue has always been tax fairness for us. Online sales and purchases from brick-and-mortar retailers should be treated the same, and this is 'absolutely a win' for physical retailers in making up a longstanding disadvantage."

From taxation to social programs, energy, the environment, global security, leadership and government, our faculty define the conversation.
Carruthers' duties will include managing submissions, coordinating special issues and promoting the journal.
