The class is taught by Wes Kemp, executive in residence in supply chain management and former chief executive officer at ABF Freight System, alongside Jason Arentz, an adjunct instructor for the course.

Watkins holds specialties in economics, financial crisis, capitalism and income inequality. He currently serves as a fellow for the Ayn Rand Center for Individual Rights, a nonprofit organization that works to introduce young people to Ayn Rand’s novels while supporting research and scholarship based on her ideas.
