Enrico Perotti, Eric Bartelsman
Enrico Perotti (University of Amsterdam) and Eric Bartelsman (Vrije Universiteit Amsterdam) have been granted NWO funding for their research project 'Understanding the role of IT progress and globalization in economic growth' in the NWO Open Competition - Social Sciences and Humanities. Project: A slowing global economy and steady rise in inequality are threatening social cohesion. The project investigates the role of IT progress and globalization in causing unequal economic growth, and explains puzzling trends in capital and labor markets. It will guide a sustainable policy for economic and financial stability. With the NWO Open Competition-SSH, NWO Social Sciences and Humanities wants to offer researchers the opportunity to carry out research into a subject of their own choosing without any thematic constraints. The funding instrument is intended for senior researchers who may no longer apply for a Veni, Vidi and Vici grant within the Talent Scheme.
