Lucas Bernard is a financial economist and professor of business at The City University of New York, College of Technology.[1]

Bernard's recent research has moved away from the traditional mathematical models,[2][3] 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.[4] He is an Advisory Editor in Economics and Finance for Oxford University Press.[5]

His doctoral dissertation, concerning endogenous models of credit default, was written at The New School for Social Research;[6] he also holds graduate degrees in both Mathematics (City University of New York) and Computer Science (NYU’s Courant Institute).[7]
