Andrea Poinelli


I believe AHE should strive to explain economic challenges accessible, without renounce the beauty of complexity. I have developed my education between Italy, Sweden, Switzerland and the Netherlands. My future? Research and policy-making. Macroeconomic Fluctuations, Economic Integration and long-term growth are some of my current research interests.
