Charles I. (Chad) Jones is STANCO 25 Professor of Economics at the Graduate School of Business at Stanford University.

He is also a senior fellow at the Stanford Institute for Economic Policy Research, a research associate at the NBER, a visiting scholar at the Federal Reserve Bank of San Francisco, a member of the panel of advisers for the Brookings Productivity Measurement Initiative, and a co-editor of Econometrica. He is the author of many research articles as well as two textbooks, Introduction to Economic Growth (2013) and Macroeconomics (2014).

His research explores the determinants of long-run economic growth, the reasons living standards vary markedly across different countries, and the factors behind top income inequality. Some of his most recent work examines the impact of artificial intelligence and the use of nonrival personal data for economic growth and welfare.

Chad received his undergraduate degree in economics from Harvard University and his PhD in economics from MIT.
