Harold Chorney's research is focused on the Return of Keynesian oriented public policy which he has predicted for some time and issues of public finance. He also focuses on recent developments in metropolises in the context of globalization. The return of Keynes is clear in the massive stimulus programs being launched by the United States, Germany, France, Great Britain, Japan and China. Even conservative Canada has announced a small stimulus plan.
His book  Rediscovering Keynes: The Deficit Papers will be published  by Athabaska University Press.

His urban research grows out of his book City of Dreams:Social Theory and the Urban Experience published by Nelson.He is working on a new edition of this work. He is also active in research on linguistic duality and economic advantage. His research for Canadian Heritage and the Government of Canada  on linguistic duality and economic advantage was published as part of a collection edited by Albert Breton.
