Research Description

Andres Rodriguez-Clare is the Edward G. and Nancy S. Jordan Endowed Chair in Economics and professor in the Department of Economics. His research seeks to understand the consequences of globalization for aggregate country welfare, for income inequality, and lately also for carbon emissions. Globalization includes many dimensions, but he focuses mostly on international trade and multinational production. Thus, typical questions he has studied are: How large are the gains from openness for different countries and how important are these different channels in generating those gains? Who gains and who loses from trade and multinational production, and how does this affect income inequality? What are the consequences of international trade and multinational production for carbon emissions? What are policies that countries could pursue that would allow them to maximize the gains from trade and from multinational production?
