  • Fryer, Roland G.; Greenstone, Michael (American Economic Association, 2010-01)
    Using nationally representative data files from 1970s and 1990s college attendees, we find that in the 1970s matriculation at historically black colleges and universities (HBCUs) was associated with higher wages and an ...
  • Deschenes, Oliver; Greenstone, Michael; Guryan, Jonathan (American Economic Association, 2009-05)
    There is a growing consensus that emissions of greenhouse gases due to human activity will alter the earth’s climate, most notably by causing temperatures, precipitation levels, and weather variability to increase. The ...
  • Greenstone, Michael; Olivier, Deschênes (American Economic Association, 2011-10)
    Using random year-to-year variation in temperature, we document the relationship between daily temperatures and annual mortality rates and daily temperatures and annual residential energy consumption. Both relationships ...
  • Greenstone, Michael; Deshpande, Manasi Abhay (Berkeley Electronic Press, 2011-11)
    Gary Becker, Kevin Murphy, and Robert Topel’s (BMT), “On the Economics of Climate Policy,” is an important paper that deepens our understanding of what some have referred to as the challenge of our generation. It is an ...
  • Greenstone, Michael; Kopits, Elizabeth; Wolverton, Ann (Oxford University Press, 2013-01)
    The US government recently developed a range of values representing the monetized global damages associated with an incremental increase in carbon dioxide (CO[subscript 2]) emissions, commonly referred to as the social ...
  • Deschênes, Olivier; Greenstone, Michael (American Economic Association, 2012-12)
    Fisher et al. (2012) (hearafter, FHRS) have uncovered coding and data errors in our paper, Deschênes and Greenstone (2007), henceforth, DG. We acknowledge and are embarrassed by these mistakes. We are grateful to FHRS for ...
  • Greenstone, Michael; Hornbeck, Richard; Moretti, Enrico (University of Chicago Press, 2010-06)
    We quantify agglomeration spillovers by comparing changes in total factor productivity (TFP) among incumbent plants in “winning” counties that attracted a large manufacturing plant and “losing” counties that were the new ...
  • Allcott, Hunt Volney; Greenstone, Michael (American Economic Association, 2012-01)
    Many analysts of the energy industry have long believed that energy efficiency offers an enormous "win-win" opportunity: through aggressive energy conservation policies, we can both save money and reduce negative externalities ...
  • Looney, Adam; Greenstone, Michael (MIT Press, 2012-04)
    Energy consumption is critical to economic growth and quality of life. America's energy system, however, is malfunctioning. The status quo is characterized by a tilted playing field, where energy choices are based on the ...
  • Greenstone, Michael; Gayer, Ted (Elsevier, 2009-01)
    This paper argues that an increased application of quasi-experimental and experimental techniques will improve understanding about core environmental economics questions. This argument is supported by a review of the ...
  • Greenstone, Michael; Looney, Adam (National Academy of Sciences (U.S.), 2011-01)
    All communities do not fare equally well after recessions and other economic shocks. Some bounce back fairly quickly. Others suffer more and take longer to recover—sometimes decades longer. A sluggish return to growth is ...
  • Currie, Janet; Greenstone, Michael; Moretti, Enrico (American Economic Association, 2011-05)
    We are the first to examine the effect of Superfund cleanups on infant health rather than focusing on proximity to a site. We study singleton births to mothers residing within 5km of a Superfund site between 1989-2003 in ...
  • Duflo, Esther; Greenstone, Michael; Pande, Rohini; Ryan, Nicholas (American Economic Association, 2013-05)
    We study differences in quality in the market for third-party environmental auditors in Gujarat, India. We find that, despite the low overall quality, auditors are heterogeneous and some perform well. We posit that these ...
  • Almond, Douglas; Chen, Yuyu; Greenstone, Michael; Li, Hongbin (American Economic Association, 2009-05)
    Air quality in China is notoriously poor. Ambient concentrations of Total Suspended Particulates (TSP) 1981-1993 were more than double China’s National Annual Mean Ambient Air Quality Standard of 200 mg/m-3 (Xiaohui Bi et ...
