Lorenz Kueng is an Assistant Professor of Finance at the Kellogg School of Management at Northwestern University. He studies household consumption behavior, the taxation of assets, fiscal and monetary policy, and economic inequality. His recent work uses tax-exempt and taxable bonds to measure expected future tax rates. He also analyzes whether household behavior responds to news about future tax changes; whether and how consumers spend large lump-sum payments; and how preferences form early in life. Prof. Kueng also studies how firms dynamically adjust to various changes in their environment, with a particular focus on the role of management practices.
Professor Kueng joined the Kellogg School of Management in 2012. He received his PhD in 2012 from the University of California at Berkeley with his dissertation Expected Taxes and Household Consumption Behavior, which won him the Public Policy Prize.
