Benjamin Moll is a Professor of Economics at the London School of Economics. He is a macroeconomist studying how the enormous heterogeneity observed at the micro level, and in particular the large disparities in income and wealth, impact the macro economy and macroeconomic policy. Moll’s work analyzes the macroeconomic and distributional consequences of monetary and fiscal policy as well as disruptions like the Covid-19 pandemic.
Most recently, his work has focused on the European energy crisis. In particular he coauthored a number of analyses predicting that the consequences of an import stop of Russian energy for the economies of Germany, France, and the EU as a whole would be substantial but manageable. Moll holds a Ph.D. from the University of Chicago, he is a Fellow of the Econometric Society and the recipient of the Bernácer Prize for best European economist under 40 working in macroeconomics and finance.
