Antoine Camous is assistant professor of economics at the University of Mannheim and received a Ph.D. in economics from the European University Institute (EUI). His research explores the design of macroeconomic institutions, with a focus on monetary-fiscal interactions and monetary union.
At CES, Camous will develop a research project to analyze inter-state insurance mechanisms in a monetary union. In a monetary union, where external nominal adjustments are foregone, risk sharing institutions provide insurance against regional economic shocks. Camous seeks to open the black box of risk sharing to investigate the institutional determinants of the various channels of risk sharing. In particular, he proposes to exploit the heterogeneity across regions to identify economic determinants of effective risk sharing.
