I teach economic principles, intermediate macroeconomic theory, mathematical economics, economic development, and economic growth and sustainable development. My recent research focuses on sustainable development.

I serve as president on the board of directors of Nepal Orphans Home, a 501(c)3 public charity founded in 2005 by my brother, Michael Hess, with operations in Nepal.

I'm co-author with Prof. Clark Ross of Principles of Economics: An Analytical Approach (West, 1993) and Economic Development: Theories, Evidence, and Policies (Dryden Press, 1997), author of Population Growth and Socioeconomic Progress in Less Developed Countries (Praeger, 1988) and Using Mathematics in Economic Analysis (Prentice Hall, 2002), and Economic Growth and Sustainable Development (Routledge, 2013).
