Luigi Zingales
University of Chicago

Luigi Zingales is the McCormack Distinguished Service Professor of Entrepreneurship and Finance at the University of Chicago Booth School of Business and director of the Stigler Center. In 2014 he was President of the American Finance Association. His research interests span from corporate governance to financial development, from political economy to the economic effects of culture. In 2011 he was one of the first to see the parallelism between Berlusconi and Trump (https://www.city-journal.org/html/dodging-trump-bullet-10850.html). In A Capitalism for the People (2012) he describes how the U.S. economy is degenerating into a form of crony capitalism very similar to the one of his native Italy, where Berlusconi emerged.
