Research Interests


I am interested in the history of economic thought and its philosophical foundations.
I am currently working on a book (proposal) on the normative foundations of the modern theory of public finance, focusing on the twentieth-century American economist Richard  Musgrave. My work explores the history of key economic concepts such as public goods, merit goods, horizontal equity, consumers' sovereignty, commons, and homo oeconomicus.
