Research coauthored by Michael Ferguson, associate professor of finance at the UC College of Business, was cited in a New York Times article exploring whether political gridlock is good for the stock market. In the paper, "Congress and the Stock Market," Ferguson and H. Douglas Witte of Missouri State University explained that the research did not support the idea that gridlock is beneficial; however it did find that stocks fare better when Congress is out of session.
