Assistant Teaching Professor of Economics
Frank Georges has research interests in applied microeconomics, econometrics, labor economics and industrial organization. He has written about diverse topics that involve both data and theory. One of his papers explores the effect that incarceration may have on worker disability insurance applications after prisoners are released from jail and try to transition back into the working world. Another paper written by Professor Georges considers the practice of “bundling” where a monopolist manufacturer forces retailers to buy a set of goods together. He showed that while this practice can improve the manufacturer’s profit, it can also occasionally improve the profits of certain retailers while reducing the profits of others.
