Departmental Seminar : Rafael DI TELLA (Harvard Business School)

Rafael DI TELLA is William Ziegler Professor of Business Administration at Harvard Business School. He is Associate Editor for the Journal of Development Economics and for Economia.

He works on political economy, with a focus on institutional development. His research has concerned itself with the causes of illegal behavior, with applications to corruption and common crime. Another strand of work studies measures of happiness and how they can inform government policies on issues that range from the incidence of inequality to the inflation-unemployment tradeoff. His current research studies the role of beliefs in economic organization, including reversals of pro-market reform and, more generally, why doesn't capitalism flow to poor countries.

Rafael DI TELLA will present a paper, joint with Juan DUBRA and Alejandro LAGOMARSINO, at the next Departmental Seminar on the theme:

Meet the Oligarchs: Business Legitimacy, State Capacity and Taxation (link to PDF)
