Posted Mar 20, 2024 - Requisition No. 123984

With close to 50 economists and 200 economics and government reporters worldwide, Bloomberg has an outstanding capacity to explain where the global economy is now, where it might be heading and how geopolitical trends are shaping the outlook. 
Bloomberg Economics offers a comprehensive macroeconomic research service for Terminal subscribers. That includes detailed forecasts, supported by thorough and original thematic research. The economists also produce previews of major data releases and economic events as well as analysis of the numbers as they break. The goal is to offer Bloomberg clients a deeper insight into the themes that drive policy, financial markets and capital flows. 
We’re seeking an economist with experience of analysing production networks to strengthen our global modeling capacity. A key area of focus: how global value chains and industries adjust to trade, industrial policy and geopolitical shocks, and the implications for the wider economy. 


The successful candidate will work closely with our modelling, geoeconomics and country teams to provide quantitative and qualitative estimates of the impact of trade and industrial policy shocks on domestic production, global value chains, international trade and investment flows. 

  •  In partnership with geoeconomic analysts and economic country desks, you will monitor / analyse threats to production and trade, and design relevant scenarios (for example US-China tariffs, European gas shortages, Red Sea shipping disruptions).
  •  You will take the lead in modeling the impact of those disruptions on domestic production structures and international trade and investment flows in the short and medium term.
  •  You will work with editors to publish short research notes on the Bloomberg Terminal, and have opportunities to share research on Bloomberg media, at speaking events, and in conversations with clients.
  •  You will work alongside colleagues that use Computable General Equilibrium models to assess long-term structural trends, particularly geoeconomics and climate change. You will bring industrial economics expertise to bear on shocks to the CGE model and to other relevant analytical approaches.
  •  We’ll measure success by the relevance, timeliness and quality of your quantitative analysis and of your publications. We will also take into consideration the value you add to other modelling workstreams and to geoeconomics / country desks analysis.


  •  Take the lead on monitoring and assessing the industry-level impact of shocks and their macroeconomic implications.
  •  Collaborate with editors to publish high-quality analysis on the Bloomberg Terminal.
  •  Partner with country desks and regional geoeconomic analysts to inform their country-level analysis.
  •  Partner with global analysts (CGE modelers, geoeconomic analysts) to work on larger-scale risk scenarios (e.g. a Taiwan crisis).
  •  Collaborate with CGE modelers to offer additional industry-level expertise on the development of the CGE baseline.
  •  Partner with industry experts, internally (Bloomberg Intelligence, Bloomberg NEF) and externally.


  •  Degree in economics, preferably international economics or industrial economics. A PhD would be a plus.
  •  5+ years of relevant professional experience.
  •  Strong knowledge of trade and input-output data sources, as well as the ability to use theoretical and empirical analysis to provide quantitative estimates of the short and medium-term impact of shocks on various industries.
  •  Excellent communications skills in English.
  •  Strong writing, research and teamworking skills.
  •  Energy and the initiative to provide a consistent flow of original, high-quality analysis and to operate in a fast-paced, dynamic environment.


  •  Relevant publications on supply chain resilience / trade disruptions / production networks / input substitution, or related areas
  •  Experience of working with Python.
  •  Experience of working with CGE models.
  •  Experience generating content across a variety of formats, ranging from rapid turnaround responses to events to longer-term collaborative research.
  •  Additional expertise in key geo-strategic regions, critical industries, geo-economics analysis, or other functional areas a plus.
