Justin Holz

I am a Postdoctoral Scholar in the Department of Economics at the University of Chicago. My research focuses on issues in public economics and labor economics with a particular interest in misconduct by organizations.

My current research explores peer effects in a police officer’s decision to use force, the impact of social and punitive deterrence messages on tax compliance, how racial discrimination affects the consequences of minimum wage policies, and repugnance towards price-gouging.

I earned my PhD from the Harris School of Public Policy at the University of Chicago. Before attending the Harris School, I was the Associate Director of the Chicago Experiments Initiative at the University of Chicago. I am also an affiliated researcher at the Joint Initiative for Latin American Experimental Economics.
