Tideman was an Assistant Professor of Economics at Harvard University from 1969-1973, during which time from 1970-1971 he was a Senior Staff Economist for the President's Council of Economic Advisors.

Research

Tideman's academic interests include taxation of land, voting theory, and political philosophy. In 1987, he devised the voting system called ranked pairs, which is a Condorcet method, and in 2000 the CPO-STV proportional voting method. Tideman also devised the independence of clones criterion which both of his methods satisfy. He is an associate of the Earth Rights Institute. His book Collective Decisions and Voting: The Potential for Public Choice was published by Ashgate Publishing in November 2006.
