Research Summary

My research focuses on cycles, growth and distribution and the decline of the labor share. These topics are linked, since the rise in inequality could cause stagnation. Examples of my work include "The decline of the US labor share across sectors" in the Review of Income and Wealth (https://tinyurl.com/MRV-ROIW) and "Classical and Keynesian models of inequality and stagnation" in JEBO (https://tinyurl.com/RTVZ-JEBO).
