Currently a professor in the Centre for Demographic, Urban and Environmental Studies (CEDUA) at El Colegio de Mexico in Mexico City. I am one of the ambassador to Mexico of the Regional Studies Association (RSA) and the chair for Latin America.
I am an urban and regional economist and my research agenda reflects significant interdisciplinary concerns about the issues of urbanisation, urban and regional economic development, governance and policy.
My most recent book, “Metropolitan Economic Development. The Political Economy of Urbanisation in Mexico”, underscores the need for urban studies that closely attend to political economic aspects of urban development, addressing the politics involved in economic performance more explicitly.
Currently I am editing a book on metropolitan governance and urban services in Latin America.

I've always been interested in economic phenomena, as they shape and condition our everyday life. Coming from a country that is periodically faced with severe crisis and carries with structural problems is definitely a factor that raised that interest.
I'm particularly interested in Monetary and Fiscal Policy and History of Economic Thought. I believe it's important to consider different perspectives and disciplines when addressing economic issues, which are complex.
I'm glad to be part of a team that aims to pluralize the knowledge and bring down to earth economic issues with a broad perspective.

Hi, I am Anna, 26 years old, based in Vienna and radically heterodox. Before I started working as economist for a newly founded social-liberal think tank in Vienna, I had the pleasure to enjoy a strong heterodox economics education at Kingston University, London. The Exploring Economics project is important in order to bring structure and overview to the vast space of material on economics far beyond the orthodox theory and methodology, and I am happy to contribute in building and fostering a diverse learning and growing space for all of whom are interested! My specific topics of interest lie in regional and rural development, political economy, social reproduction theory & intersectionality, and in the political economy of food regimes.

I am from Kampala, Uganda. I hold a Bachelor of Science in Quantitative Economics from Makerere University.
I am a PhD student at the University of Bamberg in Germany and also a co-founder of the Pluralist Economics working group there. In my research, I am very much interested in what interdisciplinary approaches can add to the often too narrow perspective of economics, especially regarding network theory, distributional theory and agent-based models. Under this umbrella of complexity economics, I am looking into such diverse phenomena as inequality and inequality perceptions, industrial organization and business cycle fluctuations. I learned much from the material at EE in the past and use it regularly in my teaching which is why I am very glad to have the opportunity to now contribute to this great and diverse body of knowledge!
Jerome Warren, b. 1986, obtained an Advanced Diploma from the Alabama School of Mathematics and Science in 2005 and subsequently studied Religious and Cultural Studies (B.A.) via New College at the University of Alabama between 2005 and 2010. After completing his studies, he changed disciplines and obtained a B.Sc. in 2015 in economics at the University of Siegen, where he also obtained an M.A. in Pluralistic Economics with a concentration in political economy.
Since completing his Master's degree, Jerome Warren has been working on a research project on the relationship between democracy and the economy, for which he has already undertaken several research trips abroad, for example to Italy and Argentina. Mr. Warren's dissertation intends to use a Polanyian transformational lens to view the domain of multi-stakeholder organization as a solution for a number of interrelated issues. It is interested firstly in an institutional and evolutionary analysis of democracy, attempting to answer the question of economic democracy’s place and interpreting the interractions between our assumptions of rationality and their effects on our predictions of human behavior, particularly with regards to pro-sociality. Secondly, it aims to develop an organizational model that moves beyond the restrictive notions inherent in contemporary organizational theory, and particularly the theory of the firm. It attempts do this by drawing on research by Hansmann, Dow, Borzaga, Sacchetti and others. The research then attempt to address some potential issues arising from the multi-stakeholder model by implementing some case studies employing sortition, or lottery, in selecting managers in organizations. It also attempts applying the prior analysis to the platform economy, seeking to apply the Polanyian lens to the phenomenon of data, and suggesting a shift from platform capitalism to a form of multi-stakeholder platform cooperativism as a solution to the problems addressed. A comparative study of international legislation regarding MSCs is then carried out in a final chapter.

Understanding the historical pathway that the science of 'Economics' has made and viewing the effects of this trajectory on reality, in different regions and times, is crucially contributing to solving current issues. Especially examining specific companies, models and ideas on why and how they were successful (or not) should be an essential part of every economic programme.
