Applied Macroeconometrics, Monetary and Fiscal Policy

Personal information




Alessandro Franconi – CV

I came to LUISS Guido Carli for the PhD in Economics in 2017 after having completed the Master’s Degree in Macroeconomic Policy and Financial Markets at the Barcelona Graduate School of Economics. During the challenging program in Barcelona I started to work with time series methods for empirical macroeconomics under the supervision of Professor Luca Gambetti. I am currently working as a research assistant at LUISS School of European Political Economy on the dynamics of government spending and deficit in Europe.

My research interests lie in the field of macroeconomic analysis. On the tools side in time series econometrics and on topics at the intersection of monetary and fiscal policy. Moreover, the history of economic thought is for me both a tool and an end itself – I am interested in better understanding the evolution of economic thinking from the first to the most recent economists.
