Outside Activities

(updated January 2024)

In addition to my role as a faculty member at MIT, I am engaged in a number of outside activities.  In the last three years, I have been:

(i) President of the National Bureau of Economic Research, a non-profit organization devoted to economic research (www.nber.org).

(ii) Trustee of the College Retirement Equity Fund (CREF).

(iii) Trustee of the Alfred P. Sloan Foundation (www.sloan.org) (until June 2021).

(iv) Member of the Panel of Economic Advisers at the Congressional Budget Office (www.cbo.gov).

(v) Member of the Aspen Institute Economic Study Group (https://www.economicstrategygroup.org/about/).

In addition to the activities listed above, I also periodically make presentations for which I receive compensation.  During the period 2021-2023, I received more than $500 from each of the following organizations: The Aspen Institute, Dimensional Funds Advisers, the Korea Institute of Public Finance, Matthew Greenwald Associates, The Peterson Institute, Stanford University, and the University of Wisconsin-Milwaukee.
