Lucas Bernard is a financial economist and chairman of the Business Department at The New York City College of Technology.[1] City Tech, as it is known, is part of The City University of New York and is the largest public, undergraduate college of technology in the Northeastern United States.[2] He grew up in New York City, the son of playwright Kenneth Bernard and Elaine Ceil Reiss.[3]

Prof. Bernard's recent research has moved away from the traditional mathematical models,[4][5] popular with economists, and more towards the role of economics as a sub-discipline of sociology. Bernard is interested in the ways in which economics blends together human values, politics, rationality and irrationality; more specifically, how this interplay reveals itself in society at large.[6] He is an Advisory Editor in Economics and Finance for Oxford University Press.[7]

His doctoral dissertation, concerning endogenous models of credit default, was written at The New School for Social Research[8] under Willi Semmler. He also holds graduate degrees in both Mathematics (City University of New York) and Computer Science (NYU's Courant Institute).[9]
