About me

I’m David Zetland, a native Californian who moved to Amsterdam several years ago to live a better life. I am an assistant professor of political economy at Leiden University College, a liberal arts school located in The Hague. I teach courses in social and business entrepreneurship, cooperation in the commons, and environmental, growth and development economics. Most of my time is devoted to teaching our talented students, but I also do research, write books, and blog for the public. You can find out lots more about me on my personal website.

  1. Your last column on donnies was right on the money. People like you represent
    what makes the US admirable.

    1. People are talking about a Marshall program to drive our economic issues in Brazil. This came from politicians. I would like to know more about this. Can you help me to go on? Thank you in advance.
      P.S. I loved your ideas I have already read here. I am going on.

      1. @Marilvia — that’s a big question. The original Marshall plan (post WWII US aid to Europe) was about rebuilding markets to help Europe recover, and stay out of the influence of the Soviets. I do not see any country interested in helping Brazil, especially with Bolsinaro as leader (he has insulted the EU; Trump doesn’t care about anyone, even if they act like him).

        So… that’s all I can say for now.
