UNM Anderson School of Management Press Release
Anderson Schools Outstanding Faculty Member Named
March 21, 2005
Dr. Parkman received a Ph.D. in economics from UCLA in 1973 and joined the faculty of the Anderson Schools in 1975. Eventually, he also received a law degree from UNM in 1979. While he initially taught both economics and law classes, he has focused on economics during most of the last 25 years. Dr. Parkman has published two books, numerous book chapters and over 40 academic articles. While his early research focused on traditional economic subjects such as regulation and antitrust, much of his recent work has focused on family decision making. His research on that topic has been published in leading economic journals such as the American Economic Review. In 2004, he published two interesting articles: the “Importance of Gifts in Marriage” in Economic Inquiry and “Bargaining over Housework: The Frustrating Situation of Secondary Wage Earners,” in the American Journal of Economics and Sociology. He has always had an interest in public policy issues resulting in his serving as a Senior Economist on the President’s Council of Economic Advisers in 1981-2 and running for Congress as the Libertarian Party candidate in 1988.
Parkman will be recognized at The Anderson Schools of Management’s 16th Annual Hall of Fame dinner, to be held on April 28 at the Hyatt Regency, Albuquerque, with no-host cocktails at 6:00 p.m. followed by dinner at 7:00 p.m. To-date, the sponsors for this year’s event are: Wells Fargo as the lead sponsor; Atkinson & Co., Bank of the West, Charter Bank*Mortgage*Insurance, PNM and Pulte Homes as major sponsors.
