Benjamin Moll

Benjamin Moll is a Professor of Economics at the London School of Economics. He is a macroeconomist interested in understanding inequality within and across countries. His work seeks to advance two core research agendas. The first addresses one of the longest-standing questions in economics: “Why are some countries so much poorer than others?” The second is to understand how the enormous heterogeneity observed at the micro level, and in particular the large disparities in income and wealth, impact the macro economy and macroeconomic policy. Moll’s work approaches these questions with a mix of theory and empirics. His current work studies the macroeconomic and distributional consequences of the COVID-19 pandemic as well as those of monetary and fiscal policy more generally. Moll received his PhD in economics from the University of Chicago in 2010.
