Inês Xavier

Universitat Pompeu Fabra

I am a PhD Candidate interested in Macroeconomics and Inequality. My work addresses two important issues facing developed economies today. First, it speaks to the question “why is wealth so concentrated?”. Using empirical and theoretical techniques, I highlight the importance of heterogeneous returns to wealth as a driver of wealth disparity. Secondly, my work contributes to our understanding of the dynamics of low growth, low interest rate economies and the impact of asset price bubbles in such environments.
