M. Cecil Mackey
Prior to these academic posts, he was director of the Office of Policy and Development for the Federal Aviation Agency, director of the Office of Transportation Policy for the U.S. Department of Commerce, and assistant secretary for Policy and Development for the U.S. Department of Transportation.
Mackey holds a Bachelor of Arts and a Master of Arts in economics from the University of Alabama and a doctorate from the University of Illinois where he focused on economic theory, the history of economic thought, and the relationship of government to business and finance in economics. He also holds a Bachelor of Laws degree and studied graduate law at Harvard University.
He currently is a faculty member in the Department of Economics at Michigan State University, where he teaches online and hybrid courses in comparative economics, macroeconomics and general business law as well as focused-topic film study courses for the English department.
