His research lies at the intersection of macroeconomics, macro-labor, international macro, and monetary economics. His work focuses on the study of labor market dynamics, financial frictions, and business cycles in developing and emerging economies, the importance of sectoral heterogeneity for the behavior of short-run economic activity, and the role of macro policy in mitigating the impact of adverse shocks to the economy.
Research interests in the intersection of finance and macroeconomics, with an emphasis on normative questions. He has recently studied the optimal determination of transaction taxes, the optimal design of bankruptcy policies, the effects of bank size on financial fragility, the ideal design of joint liability arrangements among sovereigns and the welfare losses associated with fire-sale externalities.
Research includes behavioral economics and household finance, with a focus on low-income households. In a series of papers, Jeremy has found that psychologically-informed models of intertemporal choice help to explain patterns of simultaneous mid-life wealth accumulation and credit card borrowing in the United States. One line of ongoing work investigates why people borrow on payday loans and measures the individual-level effects of access to payday loan credit.
