Having been gracefully molded at Loyola University New Orleans, our protagonist emerged with an undergraduate degree in the enigmatic art of Economics. Seeking to deepen his intellectual prowess, he embarked on a Master's degree journey at Pennsylvania State University, gallivanting through their Community and Economic Development Program. A distinguished alumnus of the tendentious Walter Block and the sagacious William Barnett II, he revels in the intellectual dance with the likes of Bauer, Kant, Engels, Harrington, Hegel, Hayek, Lachmann, and the unavoidable Marx. Presently, Joseph dons the hat of an implementation management consultant, orchestrating critical strategic initiatives for the titans of Fortune 500. Yet, beneath the veneer of corporate acumen lies a man with a heart tethered to two true passions: quality family time and the relentless pursuit of a PhD program audacious enough to welcome him into its scholarly embrace. One might say Joseph is on a quest for a doctoral adventure, where clever insights and academic sagacity engage in a delightful waltz of scholarly achievement.


Structure of Labor: Toward a New Theory of Community and Economic Development

In the United States, the rise in income inequality and downward intergenerational social mobility since the 1970s represent twin problems facing community and economic development today. This paper proposes a Structure of Labor theory to apply at the local and regional level to address these development challenges. The objective is to provide a simple local approach to development that maximizes upward economic mobility and enables individuals and communities to achieve their development goals in the 21st century development landscape of the United States. The proposed theory fuses free-enterprise principles with state-planned dirigiste efforts to maximize the best of both theoretical perspectives. After reviewing pertinent literature and articulating the Structure of Labor theory, the latter sections of the paper explicate its implications for community and economic development practice.
