Ernie Goss is a prominent professor and regional economist, whose specialty is making economics understandable and relatable—not just to students, business executives, community leaders and policy makers—but to people from all walks of life.

Dr. Goss is the director of the Institute for Economic Inquiry and a professor of economics at Creighton University Heider College of Business where he holds the Jack A. MacAllister Chair in Regional Economics. He is also director of The Goss Institute for Economic Research in Denver, Colorado, a bipartisan think tank conducting business and economic research and providing innovative, practical recommendations that affect change and public policy.

As a professor, Dr. Goss brings the economy into focus for students with case studies pulled from his own files to show how real-life situations match up with the economic theories found in their textbooks. Able to simplify complex economic issues, Professor Goss offers students tangible knowledge and relevant insights they can use to predict and shape public policy debates and economic outcomes throughout their careers—and lives.

As an economist, Dr. Goss is a highly respected, nationally-known expert on the mid-American economy who can articulate how regional economic situations can impact the nation or the world – and vice versa. He is a trusted voice who is often tapped by government and business leaders, economists and the press to shed light on economic issues and trends in terms the average person can understand. He is often a leader in public policy debates, both regionally and nationally.
