Applied Econometrics

Economics part II

Present position: Associate professor of Economics at the Department of Economics and Law, University of Cassino and Southern Lazio.

Education: Master degree in Economics, University of Naples.

Research interest: Involved in the following research groups:

1. U.S. growth in the medium term, and its relation with global imbalances. With D.B. Papadimitriou and G. Hannsgen.

As part of the Levy Institute Macroeconomic Team, I am in charge of a macroeconometric model used to simulate scenarios for the U.S. economy, conditional on monetary and fiscal policies.

2. Medium term prospects for the Eurozone. With D.B. Papadimitriou and V. Duwicquet

I am coordinating a research project aimed at building a stock-flow-consistent model for Germany, France, Italy, Greece and the other Eurozone countries.

3. Keynes as a speculator, in a group coordinated by M.C. Marcuzzo

In this project I am examining possible scenarios for reforms of the international monetary system, in the light of Keynes’ proposal for an International Clearing Union.

4. Income distribution, finance and profits. With A. Shaikh

We examine theoretical models in the Marxian, post-Keynesian and Circuitist approaches which address the so-called “paradox of profits” in stationary and growing economies.

5. Well-being, saving, and perceived happiness among italian households. With M. Pugno and M.Malgarini.

In this project we analyze subjective happiness of Italian households, based on a monthly survey coordinated by M.Malgarini for the Italian institute of statistics as part of an harmonized European project.

6. Micro and Macro Vulnerability. With A.Altimari and F. Spinelli.

We examine operational definitions of vulnerability both at the micro level – using monthly surverys of Italian households – and at the macro level – using growth regressions for a cross-section of countries, to investigate the usefulness of the concept with respect to other measures of poverty and well-being
