Clark Banach is an interdisciplinary public policy researcher with private sector experience in finance and consulting. His unconventional academic career provides a unique foundation for exploring the institutional forces that shape our behavior as well as the variation of its attributes. His PhD project investigates persistent socioeconomic effects of military occupation and subsequent withdrawal. Contemporary data, in the context of Cold War records, is used to explore variation in German regions that were heavily occupied by Allied forces. The outcome is a collection of essays that explore how far the shadows from our past may reach into the future. The methods used include spatial regression discontinuity design (difference-in-discontinuities), average treatments effects (Mahalanobis matching criteria), and gravity model development. Areas of analysis include economic development, trade, public choice and public health.
