My research is in open-economy macroeconomics, macroeconometrics, and economic history.
Here are lists of publications (with links to co-authors) and of past and
current doctoral students. CV, IDEAS page,
and citations page.
Here are some historical sterling/dollar exchange rates for 1860–1878, the 1920s, and the 1950s, that we have used in some published work.
My old M.A. macroeconomics lecture notes also are available here, as is a disclosure of outside activities.
