I am an economist at the Harvard China Project and IQSS working on productivity measurement and environmental policy analysis.
Papers on measuring and projecting US productivity growth with Dale Jorgenson, Kevin Stiroh (NY Fed) and Jon Samuels (BEA) are listed here.

At the China Project in the School of Engineering and Applied Sciences we constructed a multi-sector model of the Chinese economy to analyze energy and environmental policies.

Our numerical model of the US economy (Peter WilcoxenRichard Goettle,  Dan Slesnick and Jorgenson) -- IGEM, Intertermporal General Equilibrium Model, has been used to analyze environmental, trade and tax policies. List of papers. Click here for our contributions to the analyses at the EPA Climate Change Division.

For another listing of papers by this group please go to Dale Jorgenson's webpage and click on "Recent Papers". Some data for our productivity studies may be found on the Harvard Dataverse. Our contribution of U.S. productivity data to the European Union Productivity Project may be found on their webpage, EUKLEMS. Recent updates are at the World KLEMS webpage. Work on productivity comparisons with Canada may be found at the Industry Canada website.

My work at Resources for the Future includes analysis of carbon mitigation policies.
