Applied microeconomist Kareem Haggag studies topics at the intersections of economics, political science and psychology. His research attempts to understand the roots and consequences of biases in the contexts of consumer choice, finance, education, voting and labor markets. He has most recently explored the effects of school racial diversity on political identity. He and his fellow researchers studied the dramatic changes in schools’ racial composition that resulted from a large North Carolina school district’s busing policy reforms.
