I was invited by Sheffield Political Economy Research Institute (SPERI) to write a short blog piece based on my research on US public debt ownership.
A slightly modified version of this piece was published on the LSE’s USAPP-American Politics & Policy blog.

It’s been a hectic couple of months. In early October I started my first full-time teaching gig in IPE at the LSE. Though it’s been a lot of fun, it’s also meant precious little time for research, publishing and updating the blog. In the new year I plan to update more regularly — and in the meantime, I thought I’d share a nice bit of news that happened back in mid-November.
My PhD research was the subject of a column by Gillian Tett in the Financial Times. A quick glance at the comments section shows that the column was greeted with a mixture of enthusiasm, indifference and outright hostility. Aside from a few ambiguous lines regarding some of my data, Tett provides an excellent overview of the thesis project. In fact, I don’t think I could’ve summarized it better myself.
