Daniel G. Garrett is an Assistant Professor of Finance at the Wharton School. He researches issues surrounding public finance, corporate and personal income taxation, and financial regulation. His research often uses quasi-experimental variation to answer questions with relevance for designing efficient fiscal and regulatory policy. He is particularly interested in how public entities raise funds — primarily through issuing bonds or raising taxes — and how those mechanisms affect businesses, consumers, investors, and workers.
He is a graduate of Duke University with both an MA and PhD in Economics. He earned a BS in Economics at Ohio University in the Honors Tutorial College. Before grad school, he worked as a Tax Analysis Professional 1 in the Ohio Department of Taxation and as a Research Associate with the Center for College Affordability and Productivity.
