Christopher House


Professor House’s research covers a variety of topics in macroeconomics. Among the topics he has studied are monetary business cycle models, investment tax incentives, the value of women’s home output, and product variety in durable goods markets. While his research touches on many different areas, much of the work focuses on durable goods and investment. Currently he is doing theoretical and empirical work on aggregate investment dynamics when firms face fixed costs at the micro level, the role of adverse selection in temp agencies, and the macroeconomic impacts of current U.S. tax policy. His work has been published in the American Economic Review, the Journal of Political Economy and the Journal of Monetary Economics. Professor House earned his Ph.D from Boston University.
