Welcome at the Chair of Economics II
My team and I work on macroeconomic consequences of globalization. Our research is mainly theoretically oriented.
Our research focuses on the macroeconomic consequences of globalization, with a particular emphasis on the role of labor market imperfections in open economies. While the research is mainly theoretically oriented, it is our aim to derive empirically testable hypotheses as well as clear recommendations for policy makers on how to mitigate the (possibly) negative effects of globalization on employment and income distribution.
Get to know our coworkers, learn more about our research focus and get the latest news! Feel free to contact us.
