David’s research includes labour market studies for the British Department of Employment and the Department of the Environment; the US Department of Labour; the Organisation of Economic Cooperation and Development (OECD) in Paris, France and the International Labour Organisation in Geneva, Switzerland.  He has also acted as consultant to advise on the setting of pay of executives for both the Farm Credit Administration and the Board of Governors of the Federal Reserve.  David has advised on labour market issues for a number of private sector firms in the US including Microsoft and Visa and in the UK such as London Electricity and Tesco.  He has acted as a consultant on the effects of globalization on the US economy for the US Federal Trade Deficit Review Commission.
