Ian Crawford

I work in empirical public economics and health economics, focusing on the interaction between public policy and individuals' efforts to protect themselves from risk. In my job market paper, I jointly use panel data, quasi-experimental variation and economic theory to show that publicly provided health insurance can crowd out individuals' preventive efforts to a significant extent. 

I will be available for interviews at the ASSA Meetings in Atlanta Jan. 3-6, the European Job Market in Naples Dec. 6-7, and the Royal Economic Society meetings Dec. 18-19.
