About the Author(s)


Richard Rogerson is a Research Associate in the NBER’s Program on Economic Fluctuations and Growth and a Professor of Economics at Arizona State University. He received his B.Sc. at the University of Alberta in 1979 and his Ph.D. in Economics from the University of Minnesota in 1984.

Rogerson began his academic career at the University of Rochester, and prior to moving to ASU in 2001 held positions at New York University, Stanford University, the University of Minnesota, and the University of Pennsylvania. His areas of specialization are labor economics and macroeconomics. His current research focuses on issues related to labor supply, with a particular emphasis on the effects of tax and transfer programs, as well as development. He has recently completed two terms as co-editor of the American Economic Review and is currently an Associate Editor of the Review of Economic Dynamics and a member of the Board of Editors for the American Economic Journal: Macroeconomics.

Rogerson lives in Fountain Hills, AZ with his wife Ninette Hupp, and their three “kids”—two beagles (Shadow and Zeke) and a calico cat (Zuzu). When not working, he enjoys both travelling with his wife and spending time at home with his wife and kids.
