Professor Slaughter’s area of expertise is the economics and politics of globalization. Much of his recent work has focused on the global operations of multinational firms, in particular how knowledge is created and shared within these firms and how their activities are structured across borders. He has also researched the labor-market impacts of international trade, investment, and immigration, and has studied the political-economy questions of individual attitudes about and government policies towards globalization. This work has been supported by several grants from organizations including the National Science Foundation and the Russell Sage Foundation. Professor Slaughter has published dozens of articles as book chapters and in peer-reviewed academic journals. He also co-authored the book Globalization and the Perceptions of American Workers, and he currently serves in various editorial positions for several academic journals.

In addition to numerous presentations at academic conferences and seminars, Professor Slaughter is a frequent keynote speaker to many audiences in the business and policy communities and he has testified before both chambers of the U.S. Congress. He frequently contributes op-eds to the Wall Street Journal and Financial Times, and his work and ideas have been widely featured in business media such as Business Week, The Economist, Financial Times, New York Times, Newsweek, Time, Wall Street Journal, and Washington Post. He has been interviewed on many TV and radio programs such as CNN’s Lou Dobbs Tonight and NPR’s All Things Considered. In recent years he has also served as a consultant both to individual firms and also to industry organizations that support dialogue on issues of international trade, investment, and taxation. And at Tuck he co-directs the flagship executive-education program Global Leadership 2020.

Professor Slaughter joined the Tuck faculty in 2002.
