In 1901, he received his Ph.D. in economics from The Johns Hopkins University. Barnett spent his entire academic career at Johns Hopkins in the Department of Political Economy. In his work with graduate students, Barnett was closely associated with Professor Jacob H. Hollander. Together they taught the graduate Economic Seminary. Beginning in 1902, the Seminary studied trade-unionism and the students collected internal literature of the trade unions. A bibliography listing these publications was edited by Barnett. It was entitled A Trial Bibliography of American Trade-Union Publications. Barnett was also co-editor with Jacob H. Hollander of Studies in American Trade Unionism, 1907. Barnett viewed unions as a necessary part of industrial society, and he came to believe that legal enactment (rather than collective bargaining) was the preferred means of solving many of labor's problems. Occasionally, Barnett undertook tasks outside his ordinary academic activities. In 1909, he was in charge of a study for the National Monetary Commission, and in 1913, he directed an investigation for the United States Commission on Industrial Relations. He served on the Advisory Committee of the United States Census, and in 1932, Barnett became president of the American Economic Association. In 1937, he was selected by the Carnegie Corporation to investigate labor arbitration courts in Australia. George Ernest Barnett died in 1938.)
