© 2018 T.P. Sharpe


I am a Research Scholar at the Binzagr Institute for Sustainable Prosperity.


My work is motivated by contemporary political economy debates which have included deficit and debt dynamics, macroeconomic issues and policies of the Eurozone, and Central Bank operations and (full) employment policies.


My research has appeared in academic journals including, the Journal of Post Keynesian Economics, Review of Political Economy and the Journal of Australian Political Economy. I have also reviewed for a number of international academic journals.
