David Schoenherr is Assistant Professor of Economics at Princeton University. Schoenherr’s research interests include financial contracting, political economy, and the interaction between law and finance. He is particularly interested in how the design of bankruptcy law affects security prices and investors’ ex ante incentives, for example with respect to credit allocation decisions, or firms’ financing and investment decisions. His work examines the role of social and political connections on economic outcomes in different contexts, as well as how informal labor markets affect the incentives of workers in response to changes in unemployment insurance benefits. He holds a Ph.D. in finance from the London Business School.
