https://mitmgmtfaculty.mit.edu/cetucker/disclosure/ as of October 26, 2020:
This is my disclosure statement. It lists companies I have consulted for, grants I have received, relationships with academics working at a variety of firms, and entities in which I have a significant financial interest. The statement follows the guidelines set out by MIT, American Economic Review, and NBER. However, since these disclosures are not readily accessible and only require people to disclose financial interests as they deem relevant it seems more straightforward to just post a full disclosure on my website.
