About David C. Parsley

I am a professor at the Owen Graduate School of Management at Vanderbilt University, where I teach courses in International Finance, Macroeconomics, and International Business. Most of my research uses panels of individual goods price data to study macroeconomic and international finance topics such as PPP, exchange rate pass-through, and goods market integration. I have also looked at the transmission of news across national borders using bond market prices, and individual portfolio flows. Most recently, I have studied the characteristics of firms favored by politicians and politically active firms, by examining changes in firm value subsequent to the politician's sudden death, and by studying portfolios of lobbying firms.
