Michael Sposi

Assistant Professor

Ph.D. University of Iowa

My research explores the role of international trade in explaining real exchange rates and relative prices, the links between international trade and the process of economic growth & development, the global effects of demographic change, the dynamics of external imbalances, and the structure of production through input-output linkages. My work has been published in peer-reviewed academic journals and Federal Reserve System publications. Prior to joining SMU, I was a Research Economist at the Federal Reserve Bank of Dallas from 2012-2018 and actively provided economic analysis and policy briefings to the Bank’s president in preparation for FOMC meetings.
