Welcome!

Abraham Song is a PhD student at the Schar School of Government and Policy. His broad research interests are in policy analysis, entrepreneurship, and labor economics.

His dissertation examines the impact of state business incentives on job creation and small businesses. Using a novel incentives and tax database, he looks for employment and wage effects across business cycles. He also tests whether business incentives that benefit large firms come at the expense of small businesses and entrepreneurs.

He holds a BSĀ in business administration from the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign and a MA in political science from the Middle East Technical University.
