Lucio Baccaro, a director at the MPIfG since 2017, was appointed honorary professor of the Institute of Political Science (IFP) and the Institute for Socioeconomics (IFSO) at the University of Duisburg-Essen in December 2023. A political economist, Baccaro is currently working on the theory of growth models, a new perspective on comparative capitalism that he has contributed to developing. Among his most recent publications is a volume edited with Mark Blyth and Jonas Pontusson, Diminishing Returns: The New Politics of Growth and Stagnation (Oxford University Press, 2022), which takes up the recent debate on “secular stagnation” and associated problems. The University of Duisburg-Essen partners with the University of Cologne and the MPIfG to provide doctoral training in the International Max Planck Research School on the Social and Political Constitution of the Economy (IMPRS-SPCE).
