Hello! I'm Phil Armour, an associate economist at the RAND Corporation in Santa Monica. I recently received my PhD in Economics at Cornell University in both the Economics and Policy Analysis and Management departments. My fields were labor economics, behavioral economics, and public economics, and my current research interests include Social Security, particularly Disability Insurance, interactions among programs serving the US disabled population, behavioral health policy changes, long term trends in US income and wealth inequality, and the roles that information can play concerning employment, retirement, and health.
