About

Pete Klenow is the Dong Wei Fellow and a faculty affiliate at the Stanford King Center on Global Development, as well as the Ralph Landau Professor in Economic Policy and the Gordon and Betty Moore Senior Fellow at the Stanford Institute for Economic Policy Research. Klenow’s research focuses on understanding how trade affects job reallocation and innovation, including examining how much China’s trade has lifted its growth and spurred its own innovation.
 
Currently, Klenow's research includes a survey, designed in collaboration with Nick Bloom, of 3,000 Indian manufacturing firms. The survey is meant to offer insights into the nature of innovation (process, product, improvements of one’s own products, imitation or creative destruction of competitor products) in India, and how it differs with firm size.
 
He is also working on "The Rise of China and World Innovation," collecting evidence on China’s evolving role in world trade, and how it influences innovation in China and in the OECD.
