Markus Poschke Home    Research    Teaching    CV


I am an Associate Professor and William Dawson Scholar in the Department of Economics at McGill University, Montreal, where I have been working since 2007. I received my PhD from the European University Institute (EUI), Florence. In 2018, I received the Bank of Canada's Governor's Award.

My main research interests are in macroeconomics broadly, in particular inequality, taxation; growth, economic development, and structural change; firm dynamics, entrepreneurship, and the macroeconomics of labour markets.

News: A new "Research Team on Inequality" of which I'm the PI has been awarded funding by FRQSC. Looking forward to working with the team members Rui Castro, Nicolas Gendron-Carrier, Fabian Lange, Fernando Saltiel (McGill), Raquel Fonseca (UQAM), Baris Kaymak (Cleveland Fed), Joao Galindo da Fonseca and Immo Schott (Université de Montréal)!

News: I am on sabbatical for the calendar year 2022, and visiting the University of Oxford from January until the summer.

Updated: New version of Accounting for Wealth Concentration in the US (with Barış Kaymak and David Leung).

Coming soon: First version of Gender, Work, and Structural Transformation (with Charles Gottlieb, Cheryl Doss and Douglas Gollin).

Coming soon: First version of Top Productivity Dynamics (with my former PhD student Alex Amundsen).

Interested in cross-country data on working from home? Check out my short paper on Working from Home in Developing Countries in the European Economic Review, and the accompanying simulator to explore the data.
