From 2005 to 2007, Professor Slaughter served as a Member on the Council of Economic Advisers in the Executive Office of the President.

In recent years he has also been affiliated with the Federal Reserve Board, the International Monetary Fund, the World Bank, the National Academy of Sciences, the Institute for International Economics, and the Department of Labor.

Professor Slaughter's area of expertise is the economics and politics of globalization. Much of his recent work has focused on the global operations of multinational firms, in particular how knowledge is created and shared within these firms and how their activities are structured across borders. He has also researched the labor-market impacts of international trade, investment, and immigration, and has studied the political-economy questions of individual attitudes about and government policies towards globalization. This work has been supported by several grants from organizations including the National Science Foundation and the Russell Sage Foundation. Over forty articles by Professor Slaughter have been published as book chapters and in peer-reviewed academic journals. He also co-authored the book Globalization and the Perceptions of American Workers. He currently serves in various editorial positions for several academic journals.
