Maurizio Bussolo

Welcome to my webpage! 

I am a lead economist at the World Bank in the Chief Economist Office for South Asia, and I have been working on quantitative analyses of economic policy and development with research interests spanning both micro and macroeconomic topics. I also worked in the Chief Economist Office for Europe and Central Asia and in the Development Economics Prospects Group; and I led operational teams in the aftermath of the 2008-09 crisis negotiating with Latin American and Caribbean governments the implementation of reforms to shield the most vulnerable. 

Before joining the World Bank in 2003, I worked at the OECD, at the Overseas Development Institute in London, and at Fedesarrollo and the Los Andes University in Colombia.

I have published extensively in peer-reviewed journals on trade, growth, poverty and income distribution. I hold a PhD in economics from the University of Warwick.
