Arturo Hermann, Journal Economic Modern Thought and Lecturer Senior Istat.
I have obtained a “Laurea” in Economics (BA Honour) with full marks at the University of Naples in 1986. Then I obtained a Master in “Economics and Administration” at the II University of Rome “Tor Vergata” in the academic year 1987/1988; and a Master of Arts (MA) in “International Business and Economics Development” at the University of Reading (UK) in the academic year 1990/1991.
For both masters the final assessments were of “Outstanding Level”. I spent one year (1992/1993) as visiting research at the University of Cambridge (UK) studying the role of policies and institutions in promoting economic development and technological competence in backward areas.
I started my tenured career as a researcher at the Institute of Economic Planning (ISPE) in 1995, which in 1999 merged with Institute of Studies and Economic Analysis (ISAE). I have become senior researcher (Primo ricercatore) in 2006. Then, since 2011 ― when the ISAE merged with the Italian National Statistics Institute (Istat) ― I have continued my activity as a senior researcher in economics at Istat. I am the scientific director of the Journal Il Pensiero Economico Moderno, member of the
Advisory Board of the International Journal of Pluralism and Economics Education, of the Editorial Board of the International Journal of Green Economics, Studi Economici e Sociali and Nuova Economia e Storia. I am a member and regularly participate in the Conferences and activities of various economics associations.
In my main research fields — Sustainable and Equitable Development, Institutional and Keynesian Economics, Political Economy, also considered in their relations with psychology and psychoanalysis — I have authored 8 books (two also edited) and over 10 book chapters with qualified publishers (including Routledge, Elgar and Pickering and Chatto), and over 40 articles in scholarly Journals.
I am working on a number of research projects on the UN Agenda 2030 for Sustainable Development and the European Green Deal, with particular attention to the policies that can speed up their application.
