Bio/Research

Professor Grossman has written extensively on international trade. He is well known for his work on the relationship between trade and growth, and in particular for his book with Elhanan Helpman entitled Innovation and Growth in the Global Economy. He has also written (with colleague Alan Krueger) a pair of widely-cited papers on the likely environmental impacts of the North American Free Trade Agreement and on the relationship between economic growth and the environment, which initiated a voluminous literature on the so-called “Environmental Kuznets Curve.” Another branch of Professor Grossman’s research focuses on the political forces that shape modern trade policy. He and Elhanan Helpman collaborated on “Protection for Sale” and on two books, Special Interest Politics and Interest Groups and Trade Policy, published by the MIT Press and Princeton University Press, respectively. With colleague Esteban Rossi-Hansberg, he wrote “Trade in Tasks: A Simple Theory of Offshoring,” which explores the wage effects of the globalization of production. Professor Grossman’s most recent research focuses on the effects of trade and growth on the wage distribution.
