He is also currently studying the interaction between entrepreneurs and investors in a field experiment on pitching business ideas. He has conducted research in the economics of language and religion.

His research publications and writing have appeared in outlets such as QUARTERLY JOURNAL OF ECONOMICS, THE ECONOMIC JOURNAL and THE JOURNAL OF HUMAN RESOURCES. Clingingsmith is a reviewer for numerous scholarly journals including the JOURNAL OF POLITICAL ECONOMY, QUARTERLY JOURNAL OF ECONOMICS, REVIEW OF ECONOMIC STUDIES, REVIEW OF ECONOMICS AND STATISTICS and AMERICAN ECONOMIC JOURNAL—APPLIED ECONOMICS.
