The author of various publications, Crawford’s recent works include "Appraising Industrial Special-Purpose Property," which appeared in The Appraisal Journal (2001) and "Unsettling the Metaphysics of NeoClassical Micro-Economic and Management Thinking," published in the International Journal of Public Administration (1998).
From 1984 to 1990, Crawford served as the chair of BYU’s Managerial Economics department. During a portion of this appointment, he also worked as the acting director of the Smith Center for Free Enterprise Studies at BYU.
