Research Interests: Growth, Industrial Organization and Technical Change

Professor Peretto focuses his research pursuits on industrial organization, technological change, and other aspects pertaining to the field of macroeconomics. His studies have explored a variety of factors, such as international trade, growth and innovation, market structure, corporate taxation, industrial organization, development and the environment, R&D, and more. Much of his analyses of his subjects tend to utilize the endogenous growth theories. He has been publishing his research papers for nearly two decades, and has had his work appear in books and leading academic journals such as the International Journal of Industrial Organization, Increasing Returns and Economic Analysis, and various economic journals throughout Europe. Titles of his recent writings include, “Corporate Taxes, Growth and Welfare in a Schumpeterian Economy,” “Fiscal Policy and Long-run Growth in R&D Based Models with Endogenous Market Structure,” and “Industry and Family: Two Engines of Growth,” in addition to many others. Professor Peretto’s latest research projects involve exploring such subjects as resource scarcity, job creation, intra-industry trade, sustainable growth, and “deaths, births, and economic growth.”
