Dr Joel Rabinovich
Lecturer in International Political Economy
I hold a PhD from Sorbonne Paris Nord and joined the Department of European & International Studies (EIS) at King’s College in September 2022. Before, I lectured international political economy at City, University of London.
My research focuses on corporate financialisation in advanced and peripheral economies drawing on interdisciplinary approaches. I’ve also worked as a consultant for the Argentine Ministry of Health and collaborated with the NGO, SOMO (Centre for Research on Multinational Corporations).
My research focuses on the changing mechanisms that define the generation (both in terms of income and expenses) and use of funds in the nonfinancial corporate sector with special attention to finance, global value chains and the increasing intangibilisation of business models. So far, my research has focused mostly on firms from advanced economies but it is increasingly turning to the peripheries, specially Latin America. My approach is mostly interdisciplinary and draws on heterodox economics, international political economy, and critical accounting. Methodologically, I rely primarily on quantitative methods applied to large firm-level databases.
- Corporate financialisation
- Global value chains
- Intangible assets
- Linkages between financial and productive subordination in the peripheries
- Development of Latin America
I welcome applications for PhD topics related to any of my research interests.
