Lucio BaccaroDirector at the Max Planck Institute for the Study of Societies (MPIfG)
Lucio Baccaro's research interests cover a broad spectrum of themes in comparative and international political economy. His current research agenda focuses on growth models and their sociopolitical underpinnings and socioeconomic outcomes. He is interested in the main growth drivers of different national economies, in the way in which international political economy regimes and monetary power influence national level developments, and in the social coalitions underlying growth models. Baccaro's research is multimethod and combines econometric analysis with comparative case studies, and it also features the application of quantitative textual tools such as topic modeling and sentiment analysis as well as more micro approaches such as the analysis of large surveys.
