Teaching and research interest

Pierre Yared is an associate professor at Columbia Business School. He is a macroeconomist whose research focus is growth, development, and political economy. His theoretical and empirical research has made a number of major practical contributions. For example, Yared's work shows that economic development does not necessarily promote political development; that central planning can generate economic fragility; and that governments cannot commit to sound fiscal promises if political institutions are weak. His research has been published in leading academic journals and has been covered in the Economist, Foreign Policy, and National Public Radio. Yared is a Faculty Research Fellow of the National Bureau of Economic Research and an Associate Editor of the Journal of the European Economic Association and the International Economic Review. He teaches Global Economic Environment, a Core MBA course in macroeconomics. He received his A.B. in Economics from Harvard University and his Ph.D. in Economics from Massachusetts Institute of Technology.
