Robert Youngblood

Professor Emeritus, School of Politics and Global Studies

Robert Youngblood’s current teaching and research interests are focused on two different aspects of domestic U.S. policy. The first focus is helping freshmen and sophomores understand the need to save and invest early in their working lives and the importance of avoiding some simple investment pitfalls in planning their financial futures. The second focus is on public policy issues associated with health care and examines the question of why the epidemic of heart disease, diabetes, breast cancer, osteoporosis, and prostate cancer in the United States has not resulted in clear preventative guidelines from the government and the medical profession. He has published Marcos Against the Church: Economic Development and Political Repression in the Philippines (1990) and is the co-editor of Patterns of Power and Politics in the Philippines: Implications for Development (1994).
