William Clark is Professor and Head of the Department of Political Science and a research fellow at the Institute for the Study of Religion at Texas A&M University. He previously taught at the University of Michigan, New York University, and Georgia Institute of Technology. His research projects explored the way monetary institutions (such as independent central banks and exchange rate regimes) influence the ability of incumbent leaders to use macroeconomic policy for electoral purposes. Professor Clark has also contributed to the literature on comparative party systems, the political economy of development, and the political economy of religion. He is in the early stages of a project on the effects of globalization on income inequality. Professor Professor Clark is the author of Capitalism, Not Globalism and, with Matt and Sona Golder, Principles of Comparative Politics. He has published in a variety of top journals including American Political Science Review, International Organization, Comparative Political Studies, Political Analysis, and Economics & Politics.
