Doh-Khul Kim, associate professor of economics and finance, presented his paper, titled “Inflation and Equity Market: Sectoral-level Analyses,” at 39th Annual Conference of Academy of Economics and Finance held in Charleston, S.C., Feb. 8-11. The conference focused on contemporary issues and teaching methodology related to economics and finance.
Also, during the 2011 summer and fall terms, Kim published two papers in two different peer-reviewed journals of economics and business. The first paper, titled “Monetary Policy and Housing Markets in the U.S.-Regional-level Analyses,” found that regions that have steady population growth better take advantage of the Federal Reserve’s lower interest-rate policy. It was published in the Journal of Business and Economic Perspectives. The second paper, titled “Economic Characteristics in Housing Markets of Three Southern States,” showed other economic homogeneous characteristics of Alabama, Louisiana and Mississippi from housing market perspectives. This paper was published in the Journal of Business and Economic Studies.
The paper Kim presented at the conference in February was well received and, he says, is expected to benefit other research and data analysis he’s working on with College Scholar Eric McKee ’12, an actuarial science and finance double major.
Kim joined North Central’s faculty in 2008. He received his B.A. from Chung-Ang University in Seoul, Korea, his M.A. from Temple University and his Ph.D. from the University of Georgia.
