About

karsten.kohler@kcl.ac.uk

I am a lecturer in International Political Economy at King’s College London. My research crosses disciplinary boundaries and draws on macroeconomics, political economy, and finance. I am interested in the interaction between finance and the real economy; especially in the sources of cyclical dynamics, instability, and rising inequality.

I have done research on business and financial cycles; the role of exchange rates in emerging market business cycles; financialisation & income distribution, as well as growth models in advanced countries. My work has been published in the Journal of International Money and Finance, the Cambridge Journal of Economics, Structural Change and Economic Dynamics, and the Journal of Post Keynesian Economics.
