Working papers

Macroprudential policy for internal financial dollarization (with Aleksei Oskolkov). R&R, Journal of International Economics.

Dollarization can arise as a domestic phenomenon in which firms insure households. We study the implications for prudential policy.

Work in progress

Trade and Financial Dollarization: Firm-Level Theory and Evidence (with Aleksei Oskolkov). We study the currency invoicing decision of Peruvian exporters during a period of de-dollarization of the national financial system. This sheds light on the different roles that the dollar plays globally in finance and trade.

Banks and the geography of capital within borders (with Olivia Bordeu). We study how the distribution of bank branches across cities can matter for the inter-regional allocation of investment and ultimately spatial income differences.
