My preWorld War II research concentrated on ideas in my dissertation on marginal productivity theory and unemployment and resulted in theoretical publications on the demand for labour in the Quarterly Journal of Economics and the American Economic Review. During the war, my work with the United States Treasury Department in Washington and the Middle East, followed by participation in the Bretton Woods Conference in 1944, resulted in a number of publications on international financial institutions and foreign exchange, including Foreign Exchange in the Postwar World. My association with the President's Materials Policy Commission together with my interest in foreign direct investment led to a series of case studies on foreign investment in nonfuel minerals and petroleum.
The material for these case studies was derived from a number of missions to Third World countries for the United Nations and private mining companies plus research abroad financed by Resources for the Future. This work has resulted in several books on foreign investment in the resource industries and on the economics of the copper industry, which subjects constitute my most significant contributions to the literature. At the same time I continued my research on international finance and foreign exchange with a special interest in the Eurodollar market, and operations of which I studied in the course of visits to the Bank of International Settlements and leading multinational banks.
This led to several publications, including two by National Bureau of Economie Research, New York, New York, United States of America Currently I am conducting research on mineral issues, including the economics of stockpiling, but am also engaged, with former graduate students, in joint research projects on international trade and foreign exchange.
