I hold the Dartmouth Professorship in Economics at
Dartmouth College. I'm a Research Associate at the
NBER and a Research Fellow at
IZA, and I serve as the editor of the American Economic Journal: Economic Policy. I have a Master's degree in econometrics from Erasmus University Rotterdam
and a PhD in economics from Harvard University. My research seeks to understand what drives the demand for redistribution and social insurance and how the implementation of redistribution and social insurance programs can be improved. Many of my papers highlight the important role of social effects in economic behavior. Much of my more recent research explores the role of cognitive limitations on demand for and design of social insurance programs.
In case you are wondering:
"Doesn't Erzo Luttmer have a PhD from the University of Chicago?
And aren't his fields asset pricing, macroeconomics and
time-series econometrics?" ,
you are probably thinking of my cousin
Erzo G.J. Luttmer, who is an economics professor at the University of Minnesota.
