Mark Joseph Perry (born 1966)is an American economist and professor of economics and finance in the School of Management at University of Michigan–Flint.
He has an MBA degree in finance from the Curtis L. Carlson School of Management at the University of Minnesota, and both a M.A. and Ph.D. in economics from George Mason University in Fairfax, Virginia.Since 1997, he has been a member of the Board of Scholars for the Mackinac Center for Public Policy in Michigan.
He is a visiting scholar at the American Enterprise Institute.He maintains a blog, Carpe Diem and is a frequent contributor at SeekingAlpha.com.
He has written about gender issues, including differences in wage rates between men and women, for publications such as the Washington Post and the Wall Street Journal .He has been critical of how the difference in pay has been measured and the conclusions drawn. For example, he argues differences in hours worked, education and having children should be accounted for.
He has written that increasing the minimum wage may lead to job losses, criticizing a report by John Komlos who argued few jobs would be lost.Economist Jacob Vigdor later stated that Perry's analysis was carried out using faulty data; in response, Perry said "The jury is still out on the $15 minimum wage, [...] and it will take years to assess its impact. I'm simply pointing to some possible evidence in employment trends that might suggest that there is early evidence of some effects."
Affirming that the consumer confidence was a lagging indicator in econometrics, he criticised Obama's policies of demand market stimulation like the proposal of subsidizing electric and hybrid cars' sector, both for producers and consumers. Perry qualified public economic subsidies as a "boondoggle" and a severe market distortion, which would have been hindered the development of other alternative technologies such as hybrids and gasoline advanced engines.
In June 2016 Perry filed a complaint with the Michigan Department of Civil Rights seeking the closure of Michigan State University's Women's Lounge, alleging that having a private place for women to study on campus discriminated against men, and was a violation of civil rights.He claimed the female only facility was a violation of both the Michigan Civil Rights Initiative and the equal opportunity in education act Title IX.
A minimum wage is the lowest remuneration that employers can legally pay their workers—the price floor below which workers may not sell their labor. Most countries had introduced minimum wage legislation by the end of the 20th century.

Otto Eckstein was a German-American economist. He was a key developer and proponent of the theory of core inflation, which proposed that in determining accurate metrics of long run inflation, the transitory price changes of items subject to volatile pricing, such as food and energy, are to be excluded from computation.
Carpe diem is a Latin aphorism, usually translated "seize the day", taken from book 1 of the Roman poet Horace's work Odes.
A living wage is defined as the minimum income necessary for a worker to meet their basic needs. This is not the same as a subsistence wage, which refers to a biological minimum. Needs are defined to include food, housing, and other essential needs such as clothing. The goal of a living wage is to allow a worker to afford a basic but decent standard of living through employment without government subsidies. Due to the flexible nature of the term "needs", there is not one universally accepted measure of what a living wage is and as such it varies by location and household type. A related concept is that of a family wage – one sufficient to not only support oneself, but also to raise a family.

The Flint water crisis is a public health crisis that started in 2014, after the drinking water source for the city of Flint, Michigan was changed. In April 2014, Flint changed its water source from treated Detroit Water and Sewerage Department water to the Flint River. Officials failed to apply corrosion inhibitors to the water. As a result, lead from aging pipes leached into the water supply, leading to extremely elevated levels of the heavy metal neurotoxin and exposing over 100,000 residents to elevated lead levels. A pair of scientific studies proved that lead contamination was present in the water supply.
