macroeconomics: business cycles, and debt management
industrial organization: dynamic models of inventory investment and optimal pricing
econometrics: estimation of structural dynamic models
George Hall's research focuses on macroeconomics and industrial organization. In his recent work he has studied how firms optimally set prices over time to manage their inventories. Hall has shown that these models explain much of the price movements observed in markets as varied as automobiles, steel, and fish. Hall has also worked on properly accounting for the Federal government's cost of borrowing. Prior to joining Brandeis in 2006, Hall served on the faculty at Yale University and the research staff of the Federal Reserve Bank of Chicago.
