Richard McKenzie is the Walter B. Gerken Professor of Enterprise and Society Emeritus in the Paul Merage School of Business at the University of California, Irvine. He retired from UC Irvine in 2011 after a forty-five year academic career, but only to pursue an array of academic and non-academic (business and service) ventures, not the least of which is the development of his online video lecture course, involving fifty-eight thirty-minute lectures, on Microeconomics for Managers: The Economic Way of Thinking for Students of Business (Cambridge 2016).

He is married to Karen Albers McKenzie.
