Reis will research the impact of social transfer programs, including unemployment and disability insurance, Medicaid, and pensions, on employment and economic activity during a recession. He will analyze whether such programs—and the increased government spending that accompanies them—are effective at lowering unemployment and if they help or hinder economic recovery.
