Professor Peter Schott

Peter Schott's research focuses on how firms and workers respond to globalization. His most recent projects examine the decline of U.S. manufacturing employment during the 2000s, the relative export quality of developing versus developed economies, and the relationship between trade policy and firm productivity.
