Singh Goraya, Sampreet
Department of Economics
I work on macroeconomics and development economics with a special emphasis on firm dynamics, entrepreneurship, misallocation, intangible capital, and climate change. My research highlights how informal institutions (such as the caste system in India) can reduce productivity and income per capita of a country by allocating excess capital to unproductive entrepreneurs. In other projects, I focus on the rising importance of intangible investments (R&D, intellectual property products, and computerized information) for firm growth in the last three decades. My current work is trying to find the link between climate, productivity, and income per capita.
