His major fields are: institutional and historical macroeconomics, innovation and growth analysis, labor markets and wage labor nexus, international comparisons of capitalisms, European integration, financial crises, and the history of economic doctrines and theories.

He is currently working on a book, provisionally entitled "An analytical and social history of macroeconomic theory since John Maynard Keynes" and studying the long-term dynamics of the Chinese economy as step towards a possible generalization of the Regulation Theory that emerged from the confrontation between some key Marxist hypotheses and the American and French long run trajectories.
