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. 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.
Bernard is a Research Associate for the National Bureau of Economic Research, the Centre for Economic Policy Research in London, and the Centre for Economic Performance at the London School of Economics.
