Robert C. McCormack Distinguished Service Professor of Entrepreneurship and Finance
Luigi Zingales studies corporate governance, financial development, the political economy, and the economic effects of culture, as well as regulatory capture and the various distortions that special-interest groups impose on capitalism. He codeveloped the Financial Trust Index, which is designed to monitor the level of trust that Americans have toward their financial system. Zingales, also faculty director of Booth’s George J. Stigler Center for the Study of the Economy and the State, carries with him a civic passion and the belief that economists should not just interpret the world; they should change it for the better.
