About

A historian specializing in economic development in nineteenth and twentieth-century Latin America and especially in Mexico, Ted Beatty served as interim director of the Kellogg Institute from 2007 to 2009. His research has examined the role of institutions in economic development, the intellectual and material bases of policy formation, and the history of technological change. He is currently working on a new project that examines changes in consumption patterns in Mexico, ca. 1850-1930, as well as a study of natural resource constraints to technology adoption.
