Petrik Runst, Ph.D. Economics




My research takes place in the overlapping area between economics, politics, and psychology. My research motivation stems from an underlying curiosity about the way institutional structures can channel productive entrepreneurship or, alternatively, divert it into extractive forms of behavior such as rent seeking and by the fragility and impermanence of such institutional arrangements.

Since 2014, I have also been working on various topics related to Small Business Economics.
