HHB welcomes Giovanni D'Alessio - economist at the Economic and Financial Statistics Department of the Bank of Italy, Roma - as a HHB Fellow. Dr. D'Alessio has frequently published on the themes of household economics, income and wealth surveys, inequality and statistical methods.
He studied at the University of Siena, where he graduated in Statistics and Economics in 1984. He is currently member of the Statistical Committee of the European Central Bank and of the Committee for monetary, banking and balance of payments statistics of the European Union. He is also author of several essays on the issues of the distribution of income and wealth and of territorial economics.
The Royal Swedish Academy of Sciences motivated the choice as follows: “to design economic policy that promotes welfare and reduces poverty, we must first understand individual consumption choices. More than anyone else, Angus Deaton has enhanced this understanding. By linking detailed individual choices and aggregate outcomes, his research has helped transform the fields of microeconomics, macroeconomics, and development economics.”
Prof. Deaton is a member of the Advisory Board of the HHB project. The HHB community is loudly applauding.
Prof. Granaglia holds a BA in Government and a Master in Public Administration from Harvard University and is currently member of the Human Development and Capability Association and of the Italian Società di Economia Pubblica and Società degli Economisti. Her main interests concern the issues of resources distribution, social justice and efficiency, public-private partnerships, levels of government and policies against poverty and health.
