Philip Golden Bartlett Professor of Economics

Giuseppe Moscarini is the Philip Golden Bartlett Professor of Economics at Yale University and a Research Associate of the National Bureau of Economic Research, Economics Fluctuations and Growth program, where he co-chairs the working group on the Micro and Macroeconomic Perspectives on the Aggregate Labor Market. He is also Co-Director of the Research Program in Macroeconomics at the Cowles Foundation for Research in Economics. He was previously the Henry Kohn Associate Professor of Economics at Yale University, and a Research Fellow of the Alfred P. Sloan Foundation. He served on the editorial board of several professional journals, as co-Editor of Theoretical Economics and Associate Editor of the Journal of Economic Theory. He has been a regular Visiting Scholar of the research departments at the Federal Reserve Banks of Philadelphia and New York.

Moscarini is a macroeconomist who specializes in the theoretical and empirical analysis of labor markets, specifically of unemployment, wage inequality, worker turnover, and the business cycle performance of large and small firms. He has also written extensively on pricing and monetary policy, as well as on the economics of information. His recent research focuses on measurement of labor market flows in the US, specifically recalls of laid off workers and employer-to-employer transitions; he estimated time series of both types of turnover, that he continuously updates and makes available to researchers on his website. His ongoing research investigates the link between labor market mismatch and wage inflation; he proposes and estimates a new Phillips curve, where labor market flows help predict wage and price pressure above and beyond the canonical rate of unemployment.
