Romain Desgraz

I am a (soon to be) graduate in the Master in the Political Economy of Capitalism, at the university of Geneva (Switzerland). My thesis is dedicated to the understanding of the Swiss public finances, the role of the State in the economy and the history of (neo)liberalism in the country. I would like to pursue my academic career through a PhD to better understand how to improve the economic, social and environmental well-being of people.
