Fred M. Gottheil is a professor of economics at the University of Illinois in Urbana-Champaign. He came to Illinois in 1960, planning to spend one year before returning to his native Canada.

His primary teaching is the principles of economics, and on occasion, he has taught the history of economic thought, Marxian economics, and the economics of the Middle East. He is the author of "Marx's Economic Predictions" and numerous articles that have appeared in scholarly journals, among them the "American Economic Review," the "Canadian Journal of Economics," the "Journal of Post-Keynesian Economics" and the "Middle East Reviews."
