Cameron LaPoint’s research explores topics at the intersection of corporate finance, real estate, and empirical macroeconomics.

LaPoint also studies the effects of taxes and financial regulation on real estate and private-value asset markets using large administrative datasets. He earned a bachelor’s degree in economics from the University of Rochester, and a PhD in economics from Columbia University.
