Caroline specialises in macroeconomics and international political economy, with regional expertise in Latin America. She has extensively studied the literature on international trade, uneven development, international financial flows, financial globalisation and the international monetary order. All of these topics have been approached from the perspective of global changes in politics, economics and governance since the 1970s. She has also studied at great length the labour theory of value and, as a consequence, Marxist Economics Theory. She’s strongly committed with a critical and constructive engagement with mainstream economics while offering alternatives from within political economy, addressing the nature of contemporary capitalism and corresponding policy and applied issues.
