Current Research

Markus' research is primarily focused on four areas: first, productivity analysis at the macro level, where he recently completed a project entitled 'Knowledge Accumulation and Diffusion: Analysing Heterogeneity in an Interconnected World,' funded by the ESRC (UK Economic and Social Research Council). The most recent work on 'absorptive capacity' with collaborators from Ghent University is published in the Journal of International Economics (2020). A second area of substantial research relates to economic development in China during the early modern period (18th and 19th centuries), especially the dynamics of market integration. Papers on Chinese disintegration are available here and here. A third area relates to the analysis of financial crises since the 19th century and in the past forty years: completed papers on banking crises in low income countries here, published in the Journal of International Economics (2021), and on sovereign default here. Fourth, research on the question of the economic 'dividend' of democratic regime change, available here and here.

All ongoing and published research can be viewed on his personal website.
