researcher

Biography

Dr. Raghavendra’s research is focused on a number of major themes in the areas of Macroeconomics, Finance and Complex Systems, and Political Economy. The broad theme that connects various strands of his research is the issue of the dynamic interrelation between economic growth and distribution of income, and his current work focuses on this question in the context of financialisation. Dr. Raghavendra’s research is interdisciplinary. His research draws inspiration from the intellectual traditions of Michal Kalecki and John Maynard Keynes on the substantive front, and uses the methods and tools of Complex systems, to study the dynamics of growth and income distribution in the modern financial economies. Dr. Raghavendra’s research is underpinned by the principle that economic systems cannot be viewed independently of the wider socio-political context. Some of his recent publications articulate this view, particularly in the context of the current economic crisis.

Dr. Raghavendra also served as the Associate Director for Multidisciplinary Research in the Whitaker Institute at NUI Galway where his role was to create the capacity for multidisciplinary research using novel research methodologies for addressing global and regional public policy issues. The Social Sciences Computing Hub, the project which he led and successfully established, is one such capacity building project for multidisciplinary research in NUI Galway.

Dr. Raghavendra's research has been acknowledged and reviewed in national and international media, including:

  • Nature-India, Nature Publishing Group, published a review of his recent PLOS ONE paper (link to the review).
  • The President of Ireland, Michael D. Higgins cited and quoted Dr. Raghavendra's work in his recently published book (“When Ideas Matter”, Michael D. Higgins (2016)) and acknowledged his research in the inaugural lecture of the Annual Distinguished Lecture series of the Institute of Life Course in NUI Galway. 
  • The summary of the deliberation of the workshop titled “Finance, Sovereign debt and the Eurozone crisis” was published as an open letter, “Alternative Vision for the Eurozone Crisis”, in various blogs, like Heterodox, Naked Keynesianism, Triple Crisis etc., and also in news papers in Italy (Il Mainfest), Spain (Publico), India (EPW) and Argentina (Pagina 2).  
  • Media coverage in India on the “Modern Finance and Macroeconomics” winter school that he organised with his research collaborators, Prof. Vishwesha Guttal and Prof. Srikanth Iyer in the India Institute of Science (IISc).

Research Interests

Research focus and interest 

My research is focused on a number of major themes in the areas of    Macroeconomics, Finance, Complex Systems, and Political Economy. My formative education was in Mathematics (B.Sc.) and Statistics (M.Sc.) before I switched to Economics for my doctoral degree. While the quantitative and analytical training provided by my undergraduate and postgraduate education shaped my scientific interest in studying economics, the wider social context while growing up in India has motivated and influenced me to develop a broader research agenda, which is underpinned by the principle that economic systems cannot be viewed independently of the wider socio-political context.
 

Following my doctoral study, where I examined the complex nature of economic fluctuations arising from the dynamic interaction between the level and the distribution of income (Review of Development and Change (2004), Journal of Economics (2006)), I was drawn towards understanding the nature and causes that render real economies highly fragile and unstable. This question remains the theme that connects and underpins various strands of my research agenda. My current work focuses on this question in the context of the phenomenon of financialization.
 

My doctoral research motivated me to seek alternative frameworks and methods for characterizing the nature of complexity that is embedded in real economic phenomena, I became deeply interested in the Complex Systems literature. I have worked on exploring the complexity of real economic phenomena, particularly with reference to the financial markets. My published research papers in this field empirically examine the nature of complexity, particularly in the realm of financial markets (PLoS ONE (2016), Economics Research International (2011), The European Physical Journal B (2004)). The complex systems research not only provided the methods and tools to explore the nature of complexity in the markets and economies but also opened up an alternative characterization, as complex adaptive systems.  


My current research explores the implications of the role of money, and hence the modern financial sector, to macroeconomic stability in terms of the interrelation between distribution of income and economic growth. For example, one of my recent papers in Metroeconomica (2015)) proposes a way to incorporate the modern financial sector in macroeconomic analysis and explore the pathways through which modern finance may lead to fragility in the real economy, by not only causing abrupt crashes but also makes the recovery weaker. The research undertaken for this paper has in turn led to a number of interesting insights and research questions, which I am currently pursuing; for instance, in a paper to be published in the Review of Keynesian Economics (ROKE, 2017), I examine the institutional conditions that renders modern financial systems fragile and unstable. In another paper in the European Journal of Economics and Economic Policies (EJEEP, (under review)), the issue of intra- and inter- income distributional disparity and the consequent impact on output and growth under financialisation is explored.
 

Arising from my work in Macroeconomics, and drawing from the wider framework of political economy, connections to a range of wider social issues have opened up informing a parallel area of research that I have begun to explore, in particular, the interrelation between gender, finance, and economic development in the context of financial globalization. Examples include my ongoing work on the issue of unpaid labor and distribution of Income (Intereconomics: Review of European Economic Policy (under review)), the macroeconomic loss of violence against women (Feminist Economics (forthcoming, 2017)), and my work on the political economy of macroeconomic theory in the context of the current crisis (Economic and Political Weekly (2013)). This work is a reflection of the wider, integrated, view I bring to my research agenda, which can be grouped under the following broad interrelated themes:



 I. Financialization and Macroeconomic stability
II. Empirical characterization of economic complexity
III. Economic growth and socio-economic inequality under financialization

Teaching Interests


  


A lamp can never light another lamp unless it continues to hum its own flame - Rabindranath Tagore



My philosophy and practice of teaching draw from the wisdom and inspiration of Rabindranath Tagore’s magical words. I consider knowledge as the light that burns the darkness in the human mind and the duty of the teacher is to ensure that the light burns eternally. Thus, by continuing to hum his/her own flame, the teacher has to perform the critical role of reinvigorating the light of knowledge.

My teachers instilled in me the ability to hum, the burning desire for knowledge, which I consider as fundamental to teaching and as a teacher I endeavor to pass on to my students this passionate engagement. I was blessed with great teachers, who taught me not just the subject of study, but also, more importantly, the method of learning itself. In other words, they taught me how to learn.

The approach to learning for me is being both analytical and critical. I believe that these two aspects of learning cannot be achieved without a systematic enquiry to understand the nature, the philosophy, and the methodology of the subject of study. It is this method of enquiry-based learning that underpins my philosophy and practice of teaching, and is what continues to hum the flame in me.

My teaching portfolio is composed of a wide variety of courses within the ambit of my research expertise. I have designed and delivered novel interdisciplinary modules in economics arising from my research collaborations with colleagues in other disciplines such as Physics, Mathematics, Engineering, and Psychology. My teaching spans various levels that include undergraduate, advanced under graduate, evening BA/B.Sc./ Higher Diploma students (professionals and executives), post-graduate students and Ph.D. students.
