WORK IN PROGRESS: Research on international trade theory and empirical research.

SIDELIGHTS: P. J. Lloyd told CA: "I write a lot because I am passionate about research in economics. That is what I most like to do at work. To me economics is a discipline that has a lot to say about the problems of managing economies, in both developed and developing countries. I have always believed that the only justification for the logic of economic theory is to enlighten us about real-world markets and real-world economies and, conversely, that the analysis of these real-world problems requires the logic and power of economic theory. Hence, I have tried throughout my career to combine work on economic theory and applied policy-oriented work. My specialization has been international economics, and this is rooted in microeconomic and general equilibrium theory.

"When it comes to the process of writing, I have never had difficulty putting pen to paper (as it were, in the age of desk computers). Typically I have thought about some policy problem and the relevant economic models, worked out some ideas and equations on paper, and just sat down to write at the keyboard."
