Bio/Research

Frank Levy is an economist who works on the economics of living standards, how technology change jobs, and medical cost control. His current work includes a history of the twenty years of efforts to define and control unnecessary medical imaging, a preview of efforts that will be made to control healthcare costs more generally. Two recent chapters in books, co-authored with economist Peter Temin, explain the development and subsequent collapse of economic institutions that helped achieve an equitable distribution of economic growth in the years between World War II and the 1980s.

He has an undergraduate degree in economics from MIT and a PhD in economics from Yale. Before coming to MIT, he taught for ten years at Cal-Berkeley and eleven years at the University of Maryland at College Park and worked for four years at the Urban Institute in Washington DC.
