Próximo Seminario del Iecon


Seminario: "Starting from fresh starts. Old, new and economically relevant definitions of populism", Martes 27 de diciembre, 15:00 horas


  • Andrés Rius - Felipe Berrutti (IECON).


  • Sabrina Siniscalchi (IECON)



A few weeks before the last presidential election in the United States, something touched a nerve and President Obama felt compelled to make public his views on the populist standing of the leading contender, Mr. Donald Trump. That such unlikely political figure is caught connecting with some of the varied populist themes and styles during an extensive passage of the interview is a manifestation of the power of a concept that resists being fully accounted for by any simple analysis. Our presentation makes an argument in four parts: (1) populism is everywhere, (2) populism matters, (3) populism matters for economics, (4) economic studies of populism have brought us more heat than light and are unmistakingly
ideologically biased. We take these to mean that there is an opportunity for a renovated research agenda and provide some hints on how it would look like (concluding in section 5). The backbone of the presentation is a thorough literature review that provides support for the four claims just listed; partly enriched by some methodologial observations on concepts, conceptualizations and measurement. For the seminar, and with strong warnings, there will be a short paper and a slides presentation.

Los seminarios se realizan los martes a las 15 horas en la sala de reuniones del IECON (Joaquin Requena 1375). La participación es abierta a docentes, estudiantes y público en general. 

Responsables: Pablo Galaso y Mauricio De Rosa
