Eric Zwick studies the interaction between public policy and corporate behavior, with a focus on fiscal stimulus, taxation, income and wealth inequality, and housing policy. His research draws insights from finance and behavioral economics while using a variety of methods: new data, natural experiments, theory, and anecdotal exploration.
He is particularly interested in the problems that small and medium-sized private firms and new ventures face, from the perspective of owners, investors, managers and workers.
Assoc. Prof. Zwick earned a PhD and MA in business economics from Harvard University and a BA in economics and mathematics with high honors from Swarthmore College. Prior to grad school, he worked as a research assistant at the National Bureau of Economic Research and as a web and software developer for several start-ups and non-profits.
