Max W. Risch

I received my Ph.D. in Economics at the University of Michigan and will spend the 2019-2020 academic year as a Postdoctoral Research Associate in the Department of Economics at Princeton University.

My research fields include public finance, labor economics and development economics. My research uses novel administrative datasets to analyze the relationship between public policies and the distribution of income. One strand of my research investigates how firm-worker relationships mediate responses to tax policy and how public policies influence the form of firm-worker relationships. Another strand of research analyzes the role of tax evasion and tax enforcement for real and measured income inequality.


I will be on the job market in 2019-2020 and available for interviews at the 2020 ASSA meetings in San Diego, CA.
