Q&A with Dr. Pinelopi Goldberg
Women in Economics
Event time:Friday, March 12, 2021 - 1:00pm
Virtual EventSpeaker: Pinelopi Goldberg, Elihu Professor of Economics, Yale University
Women in Economics is holding a speaker event with Professor Pinelopi Goldberg, the Elihu Professor of Economics at Yale University. She was Chief Economist of the World Bank Group between November 2018 and March 2020. Goldberg is currently the President of the Econometric Society and has previously served as Vice-President of the American Economic Association.
Goldberg is an applied microeconomist drawn to policy-relevant questions in trade and development. She has exploited a broad set of methodological approaches – ranging from estimation of structural industry equilibrium models typical of the Industrial Organization literature to reduced form techniques – to investigate the determinants and effects of trade policies, trade and inequality, intellectual property rights protection in developing countries, exchange rate passthrough, pricing to market, and international price discrimination. Her most recent research examines the resurgence of protectionism in the U.S.; trade, poverty and inequality; the interplay between informality and trade liberalization in the presence of labor market frictions; and discrimination against women in developing countries.
Come listen to her perspectives on her research, being a woman in economics and working at the World Bank. The event will be held this Friday March 12 at 1:00 pm EST.
