Dash Anderson


I am a Postgraduate Researcher in Economics at the Leeds University Business School. I hold a B.S. in Economics and a Honors B.A. in English from the University of Utah, a M.A. in Economics from The New School for Social Research, and a LL.M. in Comparative Law, Economics, and Finance from the International University College of Turin. I am from Salt Lake City, Utah, where I grew up and have spent the majority of my life. I have developed an interest in the intersection of radical political economy and spatial theories of capitalist development, to which the majority of my research is geared towards. I also have spent time engaging with economic philosophy, as well as radical literary critcism in American literature.  

Research interests

My general interest is in economic spatiality and the political economy of rural labor. My research is to come up with a distinctively rural theory of labor exploitation in the U.S. through a critical and heterodox analysis of rural monopsony power. A significant aspect of this research is to analyze the extent to which the history of capitalist development over space can explain the widening exploitation levels between urban and rural workers. My research is interdisciplinary, taking from literature in economics, sociology, political economy, and geography.
