Pierre LyAssistant Professor, International Political Economy

BA, MA, PhD, University of Toulouse, 2001, 2002, 2007

I teach courses in international political economy, international trade and finance, and the role of NGOs, corporations and social entrepreneurs for economic development. Starting this fall 2013, I am also teaching The Idea of Wine, a course about globalization viewed through the lens of wine.

My research interests include development economics, the economics of charitable behavior and the political economy of wine. I have done fieldwork with NGOs in Bangladesh and, more recently, in the Chinese wine industry.

I have published articles on economic development in the following journals: World Development, Public Choice, Voluntas and the Annals of Public and Cooperative Economics.
