Research Statement: Marc Muendler conducts research into the local impacts of global markets. In the area of international trade he investigates how globalization affects local industries and labor markets. Much of his research is based on novel linked data on firms and their individual workers. For Brazil, a major developing country, he analyzes the consequences of its large-scale trade liberalization in the early 1990s. For industrialized countries, he studies the formation and operation of multinational enterprises and their impact on labor markets in Germany and Sweden. In the area of international finance, he analyzes the reasons for investors to acquire information and how private information and public transparency affect financial markets.
