Richard Rogerson is currently Professor of Economics and Public Affairs at the Woodrow Wilson School, Princeton University.

According to former colleague and Nobel Laureate Edward Prescott, Rogerson “has revolutionized a major area of economics—and unified it.” The primary focus of his research is on understanding various aspects of aggregate labor markets, including business cycle fluctuations and cross country differences in labor market outcomes.
