From the financial crisis to the digital revolution

This project results from combining the research interests of two consolidated groups with extensive experience. We use rigorous empirical analysis, both with recent data and a broader historical perspective, with the evaluation through macroeconomic models of a more theoretical nature of two phenomena that are coinciding in time, and whose effects can feed each other. On the one hand, the economic situation faced by many countries still recovering from the financial crisis, with its aftermath of imbalances, such as public and private debt and unemployment, and, on the other, the prospect of a wave of innovations encompassing the so-called Fourth Industrial Revolution (AI, digital change, internet-of-things or big data, among others) whose disruptive nature seems more intense, fast and uncertain than in past industrial revolutions. The aims of the project and its interdisciplinary nature can represent a new and very fruitful collaborative experience between researchers who, working with different methodological approaches, nonetheless share an interest in carefully analyzing the existing evidence and its interpretation in the light of economic theory.
