Dr. Daniel Hall, Assistant Professor of Economics, also serves as Chair of the Department of Economics for the Earl N. Phillips School of Business (PSB) at High Point University. Dr. Hall joined HPU in 2010 and brought with him a tech-savvy skill set that has added innovative techniques and teaching methodologies to the classroom. He and Dr. Stephanie Crofton have received grants from the HPU Think Big Program and the Charles Koch Foundation supporting their project to create iPad apps that help teach economic principles using market experiments. These apps have been created in a joint venture with Prof. Roger Shore and a team of HPU computer science major students! The apps are just one component of Dr. Hall’s unique teaching methods which also include various games and competitions.

At HPU, Dr. Hall teaches microeconomics and environmental economics. He is a contributing member of the Phillips School of Business Leadership Team. He represents the school of business on the Academic Planning and Intercollegiate Review Committee, the Strategic Planning Committee, and the University Research Committee. He serves HPU and community at large as the advisor to the Civitan Club on campus, a group known for the good works and civic duties. The Civitan Club has won many awards for service and Dr. Hall was awarded Outstanding Faculty Advisor by his students. Dr. Hall also incorporates Civitan into his research and into his teaching of a service learning course in microeconomics. He was honored as Service Learning Professor of the Year for the 2013-2014 academic year.

Dr. Hall has three current peer reviewed publications dealing with the crowding out of contributions voluntary public goods provision trust under different property right entitlements in the journal Games, the efficiency-equality tradeoff in the “Charity with Choice” issue of Research in Experimental Economics, and how the alternative of government provision may crowd out voluntary provision of public goods in Libertarian Papers. He has several research projects in progress and presents regularly at the Association of Private Enterprise Education Conference, the Southern Economic Association Conference, and the Economic Science Association Conference.

Dr. Hall earned his Ph.D. and M.A. in Economics at Georgia State University and his B.S. in Economics at Georgia State College and State University.
