Astor Visiting Fellow Lecture: Firms, Production Networks, and Trade

Andrew Bernard has been on the faculty at Tuck since 1999 and in 2017 was named the Kadas T’90 Distinguished Professor. Bernard is currently an Astor Visiting Fellow in the Department of Economics at the University of Oxford.
Professor Bernard is an expert in international trade and investment and specializes in firm responses to globalization. In recent papers, he has documented the emergence of factory-less goods producers in the US, revisited traditional views of deindustrialization and explored the dynamics of new exporters and the role of intermediaries in global trade. His current research focuses on the evolution of global (and domestic) production networks and the consequences for firm performance.
