Eric Verhoogen

Professor of International and Public Affairs and of Economics, Columbia University

Verhoogen will study the relationship between unionization and technology adoption in U.S. manufacturing. Using data from the National Labor Relations Board, Census surveys, and a new database of collective bargaining contracts, he will compare firms where unions narrowly won representation to firms where they narrowly lost to analyze the extent to which union contracts either encourage or discourage the adoption of new technologies.
