Pinelopi (Penny) Koujianou Goldberg is the Elihu Professor of Economics at Yale University. She was Chief Economist of the World Bank Group between November 2018 and March 2020. Goldberg is President elect of the Econometric Society (for 2021) and has previously served as Vice-President of the American Economic Association. From 2011-2017 she was Editor-in-Chief of the American Economic Review. She is a member of the National Academy of Sciences and the American Academy of Arts and Sciences, recipient of Guggenheim Memorial Foundation and Sloan Research Fellowships, and recipient of the Bodossaki Prize in Social Sciences.  

Goldberg is an applied microeconomist drawn to policy-relevant questions in trade and development.  She has exploited a broad set of methodological approaches to investigate the determinants and effects of trade policies, intellectual property rights protection in developing countries, exchange rate passthrough, pricing to market, and international price discrimination. Her most recent research examines the resurgence of protectionism in the U.S., trade, poverty and inequality, the interplay between informality and trade liberalization in the presence of labor market frictions, and legal discrimination against women. 

Goldberg holds a Diploma in Economics from the University of Freiburg, Germany and a Ph.D in Economics from Stanford University.

Sponsored by The John Sloan Dickey Center for International Understanding, the Department of Economics, “The Challenges and Opportunities of Globalization” Dartmouth Cluster Initiative, and the E.M. Skowrup 1937 Fund
