Biographical details

Roni’s research focuses on the problem of economic calculation and how it is addressed in modern capitalist economies. He recently completed a PhD thesis titled “The capitalist calculation problem: An analysis of economic calculation in capitalist economies.” Roni has an ongoing interest in Marxian and Post Keynesian economic theories, with particular emphasis on the evolving relationship between financial markets and the process of capital accumulation. He is also interested in theories of economic growth and planning. In particular, he is interested in theories of decentralised planning that attempt to overcome the Hayekian critique.
