Hi, I'm Rich Beem and I'm an economist studying state and local taxation, the Digital Divide, and their impact on small business activity. I'd be happy to talk to you about my recently published work on sales tax nexus standards or discuss how the rollout of broadband Internet boosts business activity.
I'm a Research Assistant with the Boyd Center for Business and Economic Research at the University of Tennessee in Knoxville. Before that, I was a Research Fellow at the FDIC (Boston, MA) and Regional Economist at IHS Markit (Philadelphia, PA), formerly Global Insight.
I will be on the job market during the 2021-22 academic year. If you're interested in talking about my research, or yours, contact me!
