Background

Research Areas: Macroeconomics, Monetary Economics, and Financial Economics

Dr. Schaffer joined the UNCG Department of Economics in 2018 as an Assistant Professor after completing his Ph.D. in economics at Michigan State University. His research explores macroeconomics, with an emphasis on the interaction between financial markets and the macroeconomy, monetary policy, and banking. Recent work has studied how competitive conditions within the banking sector influences monetary policy transmission, how financial markets respond to monetary policy announcements, and how changes in financial regulation affect credit to households and firms. Dr. Schaffer has taught courses in macroeconomics, money and banking, and time series forecasting at UNCG.
