Following the campus guidelines for Coronavirus all UC Davis classes, lectures, seminars, labs and discussion sections will move to virtual instruction and remain virtual through the end of Summer Session 2021, including final exams. Given this, the department’s administrative functions have moved to remote work conditions. To contact staff members of the department via e-mail or phone, please go to our administrative staff contact page.  We anticipate a return to campus for Fall 2021.

Research by Doug Campbell featured in The Economist and VoxEU

Doug Campbell's dissertation research was featured in a blog post by Ryan Avent on the causes of “secular stagnation” – the slow growth experienced by the US in the past decade -- for The Economist.  Doug also recently published a short column VoxEU arguing that a strong dollar and the rise of China led to a collapse in US manufacturing employment, and that this is the cause of the secular stagnation experienced in the US since 2000.
