Christopher Rauh (room 90)

In my research I study how inequalities emerge and persist. I am currently working on three papers. In the first paper, focusing on the job market, I investigate how the political economy of early and college education can explain cross-country differences in inequality and intergenerational mobility. The second focuses on how discriminatory equilibria can be driven by coordination failures based on beliefs. For the third paper I am working on detecting bilateral movements in UN votes and explaining these through (im)balances of power, conflicts, and economic interests among countries.
