Dr. Reeb’s academic research interests range from founding-family ownership to the properties of mandatory disclosure rules, spanning the incentives of financial regulators to the economics of information. His work has appeared in the Journal of Finance, Journal of Financial Economics, Journal of Accounting and Economics, Accounting Review, Administrative Science Quarterly, Management Science, American Economic Review, Journal of Law and Economics, and the Journal of International Business Studies.
