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

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. Our papers. Our contributions to the analyses at the EPA Climate Change Division.

At the University Center for the Environment (HUCE) China Project we constructed a multi-sector model of the Chinese economy to analyse energy and environmental policies.

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 Jorgenson's homepage for now (and at the IQSS Research Archive).

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.
