Please join the Weinberg College Center for International and Area Studies for our Global Lunchbox series, a weekly colloquium designed as an informal conversation.

Professor Stephen Nelson will talk about the effects of the coronavirus on global capitalism.

Stephen Nelson is an associate professor in the Department of Political Science at Northwestern University. His research and teaching interests mainly lie in the study of international political economy. Professor Nelson is the author of The Currency of Confidence: How Economic Beliefs Shape the IMF's Relationship with Its Borrowers (Cornell  University Press, 2017), and in other recent research projects he has studied (among other things) how uncertainty shapes financial market governance, the link between IMF program participation and countries' measurable levels of democracy, the cultures of international organizations like the IMF, and the factors that influence developing countries' openness to capital inflows and outflows.

Professor Nelson's most recent work follows two tracks. First, he is looking at the origins of mass public attitudes toward two international economic issues that are rarely investigated at the level of the average individual - the use of capital  controls to insulate national financial systems and the choice to settle legal disputes with foreign bondholders. A second new project explores the divergent trajectories of international legalization in the trade and monetary realms.
