Doctoral research

Jingyi's research explores the similarities and variations in the financialisation process within emerging economies, with a keen focus on understanding how finance influences growth and steers development. She gives particular attention to the financialisation of China's non-financial corporates, investigating its effects on physical investments and the distribution of income. Jingyi's methodological approach, grounded in heterodox economics and international political economy, is dedicated to addressing real-world challenges and relevant policy questions.
