Riccardo D'Orsi


I am a Teaching Assistant and Postgraduate Researcher in Economics at Leeds University Business School and assignee of the Leeds Doctoral Scholarship. I hold an MA in International Political Economy from King's College London and an undergraduate degree in International and Diplomatic Sciences from the University of Trieste pursued in partnership with the School of Oriental and African Studies (SOAS) as an exchange student. 

I teach 2021/2022 seminars in LUBS2610 Intermediate Macroeconomics. Alongside my postgraduate studies, I have worked as a research assistant in Political Economy to Prof. Stockhammer at King's College London and investigated growth models in advanced economies since the global financial crisis. Throughout my academic training, I have been actively engaging with social observatories and consortia in the fields of economics and political economy. To date, I coordinate the macroeconomics and finance research group at Kritica Economica and publish online contributions for Econopoly-IlSole24Ore and Fondazione Feltrinelli.

Research interests

My research seeks to provide an analytical framework to describe monetary and real processes in the open economy while consistently accounting for different Post Keynesian stances. While Post Keynesian scholars have produced a large literature on monetary and financial processes in closed-economy settings, there does not exist a consistent and comprehensive Post Keynesian framework for the analysis of such dynamics in the open economy. To respond to this need, three strands of research attempting to contribute to the existing literature on the theoretical, methodological, and empirical levels are proposed.
