James Eggert, Educator and Writer at the University of Wisconsin-Stout, has been recognized by Marquis Who’s Who Top Educators for dedication, achievements, and leadership in economics.
Mr. Eggert became involved in his profession because he wanted to implement a lifelong learning process on his students. While in school, Thomas Weinzlaw, Mr. Eggert’s economics teacher, inspired him to succeed. Mr. Eggert earned a Bachelor of Economics from Lawrence University in 1967. He continued with his education at Michigan State University, receiving a Master of Arts in economics in 1968.
Mr. Eggert entered his profession right out of college, taking a position as faculty of economics at the University of Wisconsin-Stout in 1968. He remained in that position until his retirement in 2001, when he became a professor emeritus, a position he holds to this day. During his time as a teacher, Mr. Eggert also authored numerous books and papers including but not limited to “Meadowlark Economics: Exploring Values for a Sustainable Future,” Greenspan’s Anguish Thoreau as Economic Prophet and Other Selected Essays,” “The Wonder of Tao: A Meditation on Spiritually and Ecological Balance,” and “Invitation to Economics: Macroeconomics and Microeconomics.” As a testament to his success, Mr. Eggert received a Teacher of the Year Award from the University of Wisconsin-Stout in 1987 and an Outstanding Faculty Award in Ethnic Services in 1984 and 1985. He has been inducted as a member of the Sierra Club, the Thoreau Society and the Wisconsin Conservation Voters. He is also listed in numerous editions of Who’s Who in Finance and Business, Who’s Who in America, Who’s Who in American Education and Who’s Who in the World.
