Luigi Zingales

Luigi Zingales is a City Journal contributing editor and the Robert C. McCormack Professor of Entrepreneurship and Finance at the University of Chicago Booth School of Business, where he has been a member of the faculty since 1992. His research interests span from corporate governance to financial development, from political economy to the economic effects of culture. He is the author of A Capitalism for the People: Recapturing the Lost Genius of American Prosperity.

Zingales is currently a faculty research fellow for the National Bureau of Economic Research, a research fellow for the Center for Economic Policy Research, and a fellow of the European Governance Institute. He is an editorialist for Il Sole 24 Ore, the most important economic newspaper in Italy, and for L’Espresso, a weekly magazine. Zingales also serves on the Telecom Italia’s board and on the Committee on Capital Markets Regulation, which has been examining regulatory issues affecting financial markets.

In 2003 he won the Bernacer Prize for the best European young financial economist. In 2005-06 he held the prestigious Taussig Research Professorship at Harvard University. He has published extensively in the major economics and financial journals. A sample of his more recent research is available on his University of Chicago faculty page.

In 2003 he published with Raghuram Rajan a book entitled Saving Capitalism from the Capitalists, which has been has been acclaimed as "one of the most powerful defenses of the free market ever written" by Bruce Bartlett of National Review Online. Together with Paola Sapienza, he has just launched the “Financial Trust Index,” an indicator of the level of trust Americans have in financial markets.

Zingales received a bachelor's degree in economics from Universita Bocconi in Italy in 1987 and a Ph.D. in economics from the Massachusetts Institute of Technology in 1992.
