The Hoover Institution has established a new two-week visiting program, the Campbell Visiting Fellows. The goal of the program is to bring a set of researchers as visitors who are all focused on research in one general topic area to be present at Hoover during a single two week period, exchanging ideas, interacting with each other, working collaboratively if they wish, and also interacting with other scholars in their field at Hoover at Stanford more broadly.

Clemence Tricaud

Clemence Tricaud is an Assistant Professor in Economics at UCLA Anderson. She received her PhD in 2020 from CREST-Ecole Polytechnique in Paris. Clemence Tricaud's research combines quasi-experimental designs with administrative data to better understand the determinants and consequences of citizen and policymaker behavior. Her research lies at the intersection between political economy, public economics and urban economics. In the field of Political Economy, Clemence's work brings new evidence on voters’ and candidates’ behavior in elections. Her paper “Expressive Voting and its Cost: Evidence from Runoffs with Two or Three Candidates”(joint with Vincent Pons, published in Econometrica) assesses the extent to which voters behave strategically or expressively. Her current work analyzes which type of information affects voter and candidate behavior, as well as the impact of campaign spending regulations on political competition. At the intersection between political and public economy, she studies policymaking at the post-electoral stage. In a recent working paper, Clemence explores the determinants of gender differences in leaders' behavior and provides evidence on a novel mechanism: gender differences in responses to electoral incentives. Finally, Clemence explores the consequences of jurisdiction size on local policies. In her job market paper, she assesses  the causal impact of intermunicipal cooperation and provides new evidence on why municipalities are often reluctant to integrate. In particular, she stresses the role of NIMBYism and proximity to local public services in explaining municipalities' opposition to consolidation.

Juan Carlos Suárez Serrato

Juan Carlos Suárez Serrato studies how taxes and government spending affect economic growth and welfare. His research focuses on local labor markets and how firms respond to fiscal incentives. His work bridges insights from public finance with other fields including labor, trade, development, industrial organization, and urban economics. His recent projects in the U.S. examine how federal spending affects local economic growth, welfare, and inequality; who benefits from state corporate tax cuts; how subsidies for municipal bonds affect the borrowing cost of local governments; and how efforts to limit profit shifting affect domestic economic activity. His research on the Chinese economy studies the efficacy of meritocracy in the selection of political leaders; and how corporate tax incentives affect investment, evasion, and productivity growth at the firm level.
