Statement of Interest: I have almost forty years of teaching experience on three continents. As a result I have dealt with a wide variety of students at various levels. This means helping students who are taking their first economics course to supervising dissertations. My approach, whether small groups or large lectures, have been to do whatever is possible to make students active learners. In other words, I am not there to fill them with knowledge but to facilitate and assist them to learn. Teaching to a high degree is story telling. Create the right story and you can weave a spell for your students.

Statement of Interest: Development of internet economy has created a completely new angle of repose. This transformation allows a new vantage point vis-à-vis inter-industry economics, as well as mutual inter-dependence and formation of new contexts. Networks are complex structures, and the context they allow, establish and determines the partners in an interaction, and newer dimensions of decision making. Its the information spillover that depicts the impact of successive addition of an economic agent's decision, upon rest of actors in similar scenario. It is the multiplicity of scenarios, sets and layouts that greatly magnifies substitution possibilities, implied and involved in such decision contexts. This is the domain of social network analysis, transaction cost analysis, and actor-network theory. Complexity and simplicity, of material and communication, indeed permeates sundry routines of many intricate, social and business fraeworks
