Matthew Zarit, a Slippery Rock University instructor of political science, co-authored an article that was published in Economics & Politics.

Zarit's article, titled "Understanding political−economic development in the American South," was written with George Krause, professor of public administration and policy at the University of Georgia. The duo proposed an empirical strategy to evaluate the relationship between partisan control of representative institutions and economic performance, both before and after major partisan realignment forces and economic conditions had structurally transformed the American South.

Economics & Politics is a peer-reviewed journal that focuses on analytical political economy, broadly defined as the study of economic and political phenomena and policy in models that include political processes, institutions and markets.
