Paul Goldsmith-Pinkham

Research Economist





I currently work as a research economist at the Federal Reserve Bank of New York. If you need to reach me, please email me at paulgp at gmail dot com.


I have two papers being presented this summer at the NBER Summer Institute: Bartik Instruments: What, When, Why and How in Labor Studies and Macroeconomic Effects of Debt Relief: Consumer Bankruptcy Protections in the Great Recession in Impulse and Propogation Mechanisms and Consumption: Micro to Macro.

I have created a blog section for the page for my discussions on data visualization and coding. I recently wrote a post comparing R and Stata regressions.
