Dominik Sachs   I am an associate professor of economics at the University of Munich (LMU).

I study the effects of policies on individual behavior, inequality, government revenue and welfare. My goal is to provide transparent and concrete implications for optimal policy design. For this purpose, I combine theoretical, numerical and empirical methods.

Topics that I study with this approach include:
  • Income Taxation and Trickle-Down Economics
  • Income-Contingent Student Loans
  • Need-Based Financial Aid for College Students
  • Childcare Policies
  • Fiscal Effects of Immigration
  • Public Debt and the Welfare State
  • Income Taxes and Deduction Rules
