Romain Wacziarg

Romain Wacziarg is a professor of economics at UCLA Anderson School of Management and holds the Hans Hufschmid Chair in Management. He seeks to understand what explains economic performance. This broad topic can be tackled on several levels: “What make individuals successful?” “What makes organizations successful?” “What makes countries successful?”

He is invited by Thierry Verdier (PJSE) in the framework of the EHESS Visiting Scholar Program (2018/10/01-20118/10/31).
