Faculty Bio

Mark Weinstock completed his undergraduate and graduate studies in Economics at The City University of New York. His contribution to non-linear econometric modeling of bank regulation received the Leon Horniker Award for Research Excellence. It was also at Hunter College and City College that he began to develop an eclectic teaching style which combined experimental classroom technologies and projects with video, real world examples, and humor, along with more traditional methodologies.

Weinstock was an electronics entrepreneur for many years, allowing him to bring real world elements of finance and business into the classroom to create a bridge between the theoretical underpinnings of economics and real-world applications.

He began his career at Pace University in 2000 where he was instrumental in developing a fresh and exciting approach to teaching economics. The new curriculum and pedagogy, he helped implement has helped lead hundreds of students to exciting and rewarding careers and graduate degrees at top graduate programs throughout the world. He has brought dozens of Pace students each year to external research conferences including the prestigious Economics Scholars Program at the Dallas Federal Reserve Bank by serving as their research advisor. He is a member of the Society of Fellows at Pace University with a class inducted under his name in 2015.

This week, we are talking about the economy, where unemployment is at a historic low and wages are up – but inflation is top of mind for the American public. Are we in a recession? How is the economy impacting your food budget? Your mortgage? Your 401k? Scott McGee is joined by News 12 economic analyst Mark Weinstock to discuss all the moving parts.

Pace University economics professor Mark Weinstock says the Fed has kept interest rates low for as long as it did to promote spending during the downturn of the pandemic. He says it is a little late in raising the rates, and he thinks it should have been raising rates gradually as the economy improved. Weinstock says the problem now is that the Fed has to play catch up quickly. He says the new rates will cause stocks to be worth less, make 401(k)s, stocks and bonds worth less (which will be a problem for people retiring soon), slow spending as people put off vacation and big purchases, and will increase mortgage rates.
