Senior Research Economist, Federal Reserve Bank of Cleveland
I am a senior research economist at the Federal Reserve Bank of Cleveland and a Professor of Economics, currently on leave, at Université de Montréal, where I held the J.W. McConnell Family Foundation Chair in American Studies. I am also a Research Fellow at CIREQ (Centre Interuniversitaire de Recherche en Économie Quantitative). The focus of my research is on the causes and consequences of economic inequality, the interactions between inequality and tax policy, education, and the labor market from a macroeconomic perspective.
