Ethan Lewis

Ethan Lewis has been an economist in the research department of the Federal Reserve Bank of Philadelphia since 2003 and will become an Assistant Professor at Dartmouth College starting in the summer of 2006. A major of aim of his research is to understand how local labor markets adjust to changes in the skills of their workers, particularly changes induced by inflows of foreign workers. Recent studies include an investigation of how inflows of less-skilled workers have affected the adoption of automation technologies by U.S. manufacturing plants (“Immigration, Skill Mix, and the Choice of Technique”), and an investigation of how local labor markets have adjusted to a surge in Mexican immigration during the 1990s (“The Diffusion of Mexican Immigrants in the 1990s: Patterns and Impacts” with David Card). Ethan also studies the U.S. education system. Research currently underway (with Elizabeth Cascio, Nora Gordon, and Sarah Reber) examines the effect of large federal grants for compensatory education on school desegregation and school finance during the 1960s.

Ethan received his doctoral degree from the University of California, Berkeley in 2003.
