Dr. Douglas Orr received his BA from Columbia University in New York and his MA and Ph.D. from the University of Colorado.

Prof. Orr has been teaching at CCSF since the fall of 2008. Prior to that he was a Professor of Economics at Eastern Washington University and has been teaching Economics since 1982.

Dr. Orr's areas of specialization are Labor economics, Urban and Regional economics and Environmental economics. His area of research for the past ten years has been on pensions and Social Security, and he has published articles in national and international journals. One of those articles, published 9 years ago, predicted that large corporations would start to use bankruptcy as a method to default on their pension promises. Unfortunately, he was correct, and the steel and airline industries have now followed this path.

Since coming to CCSF, Dr. Orr has edited a book on financial markets and contributed three chapters to another book on African Americans in the US economy.

His hobbies include mountaineering, skiing, hiking, bicycling
