ProfileCurtis Simon is Professor of Economics at Clemson University. His early work examined unemployment differentials across U.S. cities, followed by study of the relationship between human capital and city growth. His interests along the way have included the economics of discrimination, labor market information, and fertility. His work in military manpower includes studies of enlistment and reenlistment, with a focus on the role of cash and in-kind incentives, including college benefit use. Most recently, he examined the relationship between compensation and combat risk. Currently, his interests center on the adjustment of labor markets to economic shocks, with a focus on the Great Recession.
