About the speaker:

Trevon D. Logan is Chairperson of Economics at The Ohio State University and a Research Associate at the National Bureau of Economic Research.

About the Presentation:

This paper exploits the unique history of Reconstruction after the American Civil War to estimate the causal effect of politician race on public finance. Drawing on an extensive review of the historical literature, I overcome the endogeneity between black political leadership and local political preferences, demographics, economic conditions, and political competition using the number of free blacks in the antebellum era (1860) as an instrumental variable (IV) for black political leaders during Reconstruction (1867-1877).
