Anson Ho

Anson Ho recently finished his Ph.D. at the University of Iowa. Originally from Hong Kong, he received his B.A. in economics and B.S. in finance from Indiana University. Anson's current research interests lie in taxation, development and firm dynamics. In the area of taxation, he has done research which considers the macroeconomic effects of tax-deferred saving accounts. In the area of development, Anson and his co-authors consider the evolution of productivity and firm-level distortions in Ecuador during their economic crisis in the late 1990s. At Iowa, Anson also was a research assistant with the Iowa Electronic Health Markets research team. This team explores the use of prediction markets in forecasting health-related events, such as the spread of 2009 H1N1 Influenza.
