Professor David Berger specializes in macroeconomics, monetary economics and labor economics. He has a particular interest in investigating how household and firm level data can be used to understand macroeconomic aggregates and policy. Recent projects include (1) Providing empirical and theoretical evidence that aggregate durable spending is less responsive to economic stimulus in recessions, a fact that has importance implications for government policy (2) Learning about the the nominal transmission mechanism and the nature of shocks affecting firms from how prices respond to exchange rate shocks. Berger is an Assistant Professor of Economics at Northwestern University and he received his Ph.D. from Yale in 2012.
