Participating in the conceptualisation and historical-institutional analysis with aims to analyse the rise of state capitalism and economic populism worldwide. My tasks relate especially to identify and critically assess the origins of macroeconomic populism by focusing mostly on the experience of Latin America; and to contrast the experience of Latin America with the developmental state models of East Asian countries. Furthermore the comparative analysis across countries and by time aims to identify the main variants of state capitalism across the world, and conducting a comparative analysis of populist regimes both in developed and developing countries.
