    Clara Mattei

    Profile

    Clara E. Mattei is an Assistant Professor in the Economics Department of The New School for Social Research, and is a 2018-2019 member of the School of Social Sciences at the Institute for Advanced Studies. Her research contributes to the history of capitalism, exploring the critical relation between economic ideas and technocratic policy making. She is currently working on her book project entitled Economic Crisis and Technocratic Repression: On the Origins and Rationality of Austerity, which investigates austerity as a powerful tool of reaction against the unprecedented crisis of capitalism after World War I, the mobilization of the working classes, and the proposals for post-capitalist reconstruction.
