I am a political scientist
working in the area of comparative political
economy. My particular interests lie in how key
capitalist institutions--things like money,
property, and private law, and the various
organizations and state agencies that manage
them--emerge, change, and affect economic
policy. For me, the best form of evidence on
these matters tends to be well-documented
narratives about particular historical episodes.
My recent research focuses on the Eurozone
crisis. I have also worked extensively on
politics and economics in the Soviet Union and
You may be interested in my article "Governing
by Panic: The Politics of the Eurozone Crisis,"
which is forthcoming in Politics & Society.

issues and comparative political economy, please
