Professor and Social Entrepreneurship Program Co-Director, Wartburg College
Scott Fullwiler holds the James A. Leach Chair in Banking and Monetary Economics and is Social Entrepreneurship Program Co-Director at Wartburg College in Waverly, Iowa, USA. He is currently in the midst of a period of transition as he continues to learn more about social finance, impact investing, and social capital markets, which have now become nearly an all-consuming interest, or even a passion.
In addition to Fullwiler’s current position at Wartburg College, he is a research associate with the Center for Full Employment and Price Stability in Kansas City, Missouri, with particular expertise on the details of monetary and fiscal policy operations, money markets and the payments system, macroeconomic policy, and large-scale macroeconometric models. He is frequently invited to present his research at regional, national and international conferences and has published numerous journal articles, book chapters, and working papers. His research on central bank operations has been required reading in several Ph.D.-level courses in monetary economics. His recently co-edited book, Institutional Analysis and Praxis: The Social Fabric Matrix Approach (published by Springer, 2009) applies systems-theoretic approaches to economic policy analysis.
At Wartburg College, Fullwiler teaches Advanced Macroeconomics, Financial Management, Financial Modeling and Valuation, Bank Management, Social Entrepreneurship, and Social Capital Markets—Finance for Social and Environmental Impact. He received his Ph.D. in Economics from the University of Nebraska.
