Debra Dwyer’s research consists of health and labor economics with ties to public policy. Her research also focuses on general market failures and evaluation of the healthcare sector in the United States, including the Affordable Care Ac​t​. Dwyer ​ thinks the ACA shouldn't be repealed, and suggests closing loopholes while having a public option and a stronger mandate for healthcare insurance instead of moving towards a private non-competitive market.
