Ben Hyman joined the Federal Reserve Bank as an Economist in the Research and Statistics group in January 2019. His primary research uses employer-employee matched data to analyze the effects of diverse social insurance and retraining incentives on workers displaced by trade and automation. He also studies the effects of tax incentives on firm location and investment decisions, and how those choices pass through to local labor market outcomes. Prior to joining the New York Fed, he was a postdoctoral fellow at the Becker-Friedman Institute at the University of Chicago. Ben received his Ph.D. in Applied Economics from the Wharton School, University of Pennsylvania, in May 2018, and holds an Masters in Urban and Regional Planning from MIT.
