Lisa Kahn (Yale School of Management) discusses "Employment Cyclicality and Firm Quality"

Professor Lisa Kahn, from the Yale School of Management, will present "Employment Cylicality and Firm Quality."  Professor Kahn is a labor economist with interests in organizations and education. Her most recent work examines the impact of the Great Recession on employment across firms of varying quality.  She has also examined the consequences of graduating from college in a bad economy, finding surprisingly long-lasting, negative wage effects. Her related work suggests that college graduates who majored in more technical and higher paying fields are generally sheltered from this effect, but that was not the case during the Great Recession.  

From 2010 to 2011 Kahn served on President Obama's Council of Economic Advisers as the senior economist for labor and education policy. She has also been a visiting fellow at Brookings Institution and is currently an IZA Research Fellow.
