Professor Bernard is an expert on firm and industry responses to globalization. He was one of the first academics to study how firms respond to globalization and has published papers on exporting, offshoring, outsourcing, and productivity, including his most recent publication entitled, "Firms in International Trade" published in the Journal of Economic Perspectives. He has also examined the strategic response of U.S. and German firms to competition from low-cost countries such as China, transfer pricing decisions by US-based multinationals, and the effects of tariff and trade cost reductions on firm performance and productivity growth in the economy. His current research is focused on analyzing the factors multinational firms consider when entering multiple product markets in different countries, where they choose to produce those products, and how they are sourced. He received a grant from the National Science Foundation to support his work on firms and products in international trade.
In addition to being published in top academic journals such as the Harvard Business Journal and the American Economic Review, Bernard's research has been featured on CNN, CNBC, Good Morning America, MSNBC, NPR, the BBC, and in The New York Times, The Wall Street Journal, Financial Times, The Economist, Nikkei, Fortune, and Business Week. Professor Bernard is an associate editor of the Review of Economics and Statistics and the Journal of International Economics.
Professor Bernard is also an independent Director of the Chicago-based National Stock Exchange and a Research Associate for the National Bureau of Economic Research, the Institute for Fiscal Studies in London, and the Centre for Economic Performance at the London School of Economics. Most recently, he has lectured at the IMF, the European Central Bank, and the European Commission on the topic of firms and globalization. In recent years, he has been a Visiting Scholar at both the Federal Reserve Board and the New York Federal Reserve Bank and has consulted with the Appalachian Regional Commission and the NIST Manufacturing Extension Program.
