Professor Blanchard studies the economics and policy implications of globalization. Much of her work articulates a changing role for multilateral negotiation forums such as the World Trade Organization in response to production and ownership fragmentation across borders, and documents the extent to which the multinationalization of firms is already reshaping governments' trade policies. Professor Blanchard teaches the second core economics course, Global Economics for Managers, as well as an elective research to practice seminar, Firms, Governments, and the Future of Trade, Immigration, and Investment Policy.
