Her research uses sources such as published annual reports and archives. She explores a theme in Keynes’ work of suppressing self-interest to preserve community, which unites Economic Consequences of the Peace (1920) with Keynes’ proposed International Clearing Union (1941). In all of these projects, she explores how man-made institutions interact with market forces. Her articles have appeared in the History of Political Economy (HOPE), the Review of Radical Political Economics, and the International Journal of Pluralism in Economics Education. Dr. Duggan lives in rural New Hampshire, where she is Professor of Economics at Keene State College.
