As of fall 2022, my research program is driven by three convictions, namely that (1) economics can and should be done in a variety of ways, (2) that we can do economics better if we are attentive to its history and philosophy, and (3) economics has more explanatory and transformative power if we are attentive to the sociological and institutional foundations of capitalism. The research program is located squarely within heterodox economics and has four related thematic areas: (1) institutionalist Post Keynesianism macroeconomics, (2) history of economic thought, especially the history of Keynes’s ideas, (3) methodology, especially interdisciplinary approaches to the study of capitalism, (4) monetary economics and the political economy of money. My doctoral dissertation work (Essays on the Theory and History of Central Bank Evolution) is located at the intersection of these themes. You can read part of my PhD dissertation work on the twin endogeneities hypothesis here.
