José Bruno’s research is on political economy of finance and its economic consequences and is supervised by Dr Dimitris Sotiropoulos, Dr Andrew Trigg and Dr Constantinos Repapis. The research explores the relation between financialization, exchange rates and the productive structure of the economy. One of the aims of the research is to review critically the existing theories of long-term exchange rate determination and propose a new framework based on the surplus value approach. Further, the research aims to analyse the distortions caused by financialization on short-term exchange rates and its consequences to the productive structure of the economy.
