Mun Ho centers his research on economic growth, productivity, taxation, and environmental economics. He coauthored a 2005 book, Information Technology and the American Growth Resurgence, which traced the adoption of information technology by U.S. industries and the parallel growth of highly educated workers. Ho also recently authored a 2020 paper in Energy Economics titled, "Analyzing Carbon Price Policies Using a General Equilibrium Model with Production Parameters Estimated Using Firm Data."
He is a senior economist at Dale Jorgenson Associates and contributes to the firm’s analysis of energy and environmental policies for the U.S. Department of Energy and Environmental Protection Agency.
Ho also works with the Harvard University Center for the Environment, focusing on Chinese energy use and environmental policy. That research is reported in a 2007 book that he co-edited, Clearing the Air: Assessing the Health and Economic Damages of Air Pollution in China. Additionally, he wrote an article in the Journal of Public Economics titled "When Carbon Emission Trading Meets a Regulated Industry: evidence from the electricity sector of China," analyzing the emissions impacts of China's carbon market pilot programs.
