Time & Location
About the Event
This seminar introduces shift-share designs, common practice in trade, migration and innovation studies, and uses them to study a topic central in political economy: the interaction between economic growth and regulation.

From November 2016 to August 2018, Matia was a Postdoctoral Researcher at the Innocenzo Gasparini Institute for Economic Research (IGIER), Bocconi University, where he worked on a project which used advanced text analysis (based on computational linguistics) to study delegation, legislative complexity and economic growth.
Matia is also working on other topics: business and government in the European Union; public policy and public opinion in tobacco control; representation and transparency in local democracies. He has been involved in several cross-country research projects, funded by the European Research Council, the British Academy and the Economic and Social Research Council. Matia's research has featured in several journals, such as JPART, PSJ, EJPR and JEPP, and his manuscript (with David Coen and Alexander Katsaitis) is forthcoming with Oxford University Press.
