David Wiczer

I am an Economist at the Federal Reserve Bank of St. Louis and I teach 
at Washington University in St. Louis. I concentrate primarily on 
macroeconomics and labor economics, especially as they relate to 
occupations and occupational choice.

PERSONAL:

Besides economics: I'm a running junkie, and most of what I talk about parrots podcasts I listen to while I run. I follow the NFL and play hockey, so long as everyone promises not to hit me too hard. Like any post-modern, post-internet privacy child, Facebook is the best summary of my life.
