Susan Tenenbaum did graduate work in political philosophy and finance, both of which nourished her continuing research interest: the role of ideas in the shaping of public policy.  In her writings she has explored this theme as it relates to a wide range of topics, including the ethics of cost-benefit analysis, the status of the public corporation, and the interaction of Darwinian thought and social policy.  At present, she is working on a book on "Art, Policy and Power."  Professor Tenenbaum teaches Public Policy and Government and the American Economy, and supervises the department's Internship program.  Professor Tenenbaum lives in New Jersey.
