Note: Alessandro is currently on leave from the World Bank.
Hello, I am Alessandro Magnoli Bocchi.
I like economics, because it provides nice tools to understand what’s happening in the world. For instance, it provides answers to questions like: Why do some countries grow, and others don’t? Why investment pours into some regions, but flees from others? What to do with unemployment? Are prices rising too fast?
I hope you too find these questions important and stimulating - and I look forward to learning, together with you, some of the answers.
My main interests include economic growth, fiscal policy and public finance, social systems analysis, welfare theory, and development.
Currently I work at the World Bank. Previously, I was a Research Associate at Harvard University, and an economist at the Inter-American Development Bank.
