Pedro Da Costa
Pedro Nicolaci da Costa joined the Peterson Institute for International Economics (PIIE) as editorial fellow in October 2015. He has been writing about economics and financial markets since 2001, first at Reuters and most recently at the Wall Street Journal. In 2010, he was a coauthor of the article “Club Fed: Ties That Bind at the Federal Reserve,” which helped spur the Fed to adopt a more open communications policy. His reporting in 2010 on the failure of some academic economists to disclose financial ties contributed to a new code of conduct adopted by the American Economic Association (PIIE adheres to a similar code of disclosure and data reproducibility adopted in 2014). His writing and research focuses on central banking, labor markets, inequality, and other macroeconomic issues.
