About Will McGuire

I am an assistant professor of economics in the division of Politics, Philosophy and Public Affairs. My research interests are mostly in areas of applied microeconomics, including international trade and economic development. I have done theoretical and empirical work on the resolution of credence good problems in weak regulatory environments. The empirical portion of this work has mostly focused on China, where I have studied food safety and the role of voluntary industry standards in environmental protection. I have also studied the connections between innovation and growth in China. I am also developing a new research program on environmental valuation in Washington State.
My teaching reflects my research interests. In addition to the basic theory courses, I teach upper-level electives on the Chinese economy and international political economy. I also teach a course on ethics and economics, where we study the many points of intersection between neoclassical economic theory and normative ethics.
