Giacomo BRusco

Thank you for your interest! I am a PhD candidate in Economics at the University of Michigan, Ann Arbor. My major area of interest is Public Economics, though I also cultivate interests in Industrial Organization, Finance, and Political Economy. My Job Market Paper looks at the effects of the Tax Cuts and Jobs Act of 2017 on the stock market valuations of companies, with the objective of studying how economic rents and market power shape corporate profits and corporate tax incidence. Some of my other work studies how people’s (in)attention to taxes affects their welfare, and how one might measure this effect; how political considerations about future corporate tax changes affect the investment behavior of firms; and more!

I will be on the job market in 2019-2020 and available for interviews at the 2020 ASSA meetings in San Diego, California, as well as at the 2019 European Job Market for Economists in Rotterdam, Netherlands.
