Welcome to my web page. My name is Keith Ihlanfeldt and I am a Professor of Economics and the Devoe Moore Eminent Scholar within the Florida State University College of Social Sciences and Public Policy. From 2003 to 2013 I was director of the Devoe Moore Center within the College. Prior to coming to Florida State University in 2000 I was a faculty member of the Andrew Young School at Georgia State University in Atlanta for 19 years. I have also taught at Old Dominion University, University of Dayton, University of Missouri at St. Louis, and Washington University at St. Louis where I also received my Ph.D. in 1978. My undergraduate college days were spent at Illinois Wesleyan University in Bloomington, Illinois, where I was an Academic All-American Football Player at defensive end. My fields of interest include urban and regional economics, local public finance, and labor economics. I have published over 100 articles and book chapters. The articles have appeared mostly in field journals, such as the Journal of Urban Economics and the Journal of Law and Economics, but I have also published in general interest journals, including the American Economic Review, The Quarterly Journal of Economics, the Review of Economics and Statistics, Economic Inquiry, and the Southern Economic Journal. In 2009 I was named a Fellow of the Regional Science Association, International. Recently, I was named the Halbert C. Smith Honorary Fellow for 2018 by the Homer Hoyt Institute. I have served on the editorial boards of nine different economics and public policy journals, and have edited special issues for the Journal of Regional Science, Urban Studies, and the Journal of Housing Economics.
