Assistant Professor of Economics
Dr. Harvey teaches both microeconomics and macroeconomics at Penn State Mont Alto. His research interest focuses on international finance or open macroeconomics. He has mainly employed empirical techniques to evaluate equilibrium conditions derived from theories, offering contributions in the following applied areas: the effect of exchange rate policy on a country’s trade balance and the relative merits of alternative exchange rate regimes. Currently, he is working on a paper focusing on the direct relationship between exchange rates and trade balance using disaggregated data (Indonesia as a case study). The main objective of this research is to investigate the short-run and long-run effect of real depreciation of the Indonesia’s rupiah on her trade balance.
