Good to know

Max Steinhardt`s primary research interests are in labor economics, political economy, economics of migration, and U.S. economic policy. In his works, he has addressed classical labor market topics such as the impact of immigration on native wages or the role of income for subjective well-being as well as various questions dealing with the integration of immigrants. Moreover, he has a long-term project about the political economy of trade and immigration policy in the United States. Within this project, a rich data set has been constructed containing roll call votes of U.S. House representatives. In another project, he started to analyze the long-term effects of racial diversity in childhood on adult behavior and attitudes. First evidence from U.S. schools suggests that mixing kids in school leads to more mixed-race adult relationships, while it has no effect on educational or labor market outcomes.
