Simon Mongey

University of Chicago

Simon Mongey is a macroeconomist whose interest is in labor economics and the effect of the competitive structure of markets on macroeconomic outcomes. In work published recently in the American Economic Review, he presents a new model of firm hiring that accounts for part of the slow recovery from the 2008 recession. His most recent work considers the effects of market concentration in labor markets via mergers on employment and wages, and the role of large firms in product pricing. He completed his PhD in economics at New York University and was a junior scholar in economic research at the Federal Reserve Bank of Minneapolis. Originally from Australia, he completed his undergraduate studies at the University of Melbourne and the University of Western Australia.

As a teacher, I am committed to engaging my students in a transformative process that improves their craft as physicians. A central component of my teaching philosophy is to create a didactic environment where growth is fueled not only through outside influences, but also from within. Ideally, my students realize that learning is a lifetime engagement that requires a harmony between one’s commitments and actions. As a teacher, I strive to cultivate this dedication in my students.
