William Fuchs is Assistant Professor at the UC Berkeley Haas Finance Group. Prior to that he was Assistant Professor and Thornber Research Fellow in the Department of Economics, University of Chicago. William Fuchs has a PhD in Economics from the Stanford Graduate School of Business.
His research focuses on situations with a poor contractual environment due to asymmetric information or lack of formal enforcement. He studies how repeated interactions or policies can be used to partially overcome the underlying frictions. His work is mostly theoretical and carried out at a relatively high level of abstraction, but the insights gathered can be widely applied from the design of transnational institutions, to the design of contracts within an organization, and the regulation of diverse markets by governments.
