Marriage Market: How Rules of the Game Affect the Outcomes
Guest speaker: Dr. Thomas Cvrcek

Dr. Tomas Cvrcek was born in 1977 in what was then Czechoslovakia. After graduating with a B.A. in Economics and International Relations at Charles University in Prague, he spent a year at Yale University as a Fulbright scholar, earning a Master's Degree in International and Development Economics. Dr. Cvrcek then pursued a Ph.D. in Economics at Vanderbilt University which he received in 2007.

Since then, he has been on the faculty of the Department of Economics of Clemson University, South Carolina. His research lies at the intersection of economic history, demography and labor economics which is to say that Dr. Cvrcek studies long-term trends in living standards, labor force participation, fertility and marriage behavior.

He has published his work in publications such as the Journal of Economic History, Explorations in Economic History, Journal of Family History, Demographic Research and others.
