Yair Listokin is the Shibley Family Fund Professor of Law at Yale Law School. His scholarship examines tax law, corporate law, and contract law from both empirical and theoretical perspectives. He is particularly interested in the interactions between law and macroeconomics. He argues that law provides an unexplored tool for stabilizing depressed economies when monetary and fiscal policy prove inadequate. Professor Listokin has been honored with a Milton Friedman Fellowship from the Becker-Friedman Institute at the University of Chicago and has served as a Visiting Professor at Columbia Law School, Harvard Law School, and NYU School of Law. His research has been featured in Fortune, cnn.com, The Boston Globe, and Slate. Recent research projects include a book manuscript entitled “Law and Macroeconomics,” an examination of different methods for estimating the value of implicit government spending through the income tax code, and an empirical study of the corporate voting tendencies of mutual funds relative to other corporate shareholders.
