Ennio E. Piano

I'm a PhD candidate in the Department of Economics at George Mason University. I'm also a PhD fellow at the Mercatus Center and a Graduate Fellow at the F.A. Hayek Program for Advanced Study in Philosophy, Politics, and Economics. My research interests are in political economy, public choice theory, the economics of institutions, and economic history. My work has been published in such academic outlets as Public Choice, Rationality & Society, the International Review of Law and Economics, the Oxford Handbook of Public Choice, and Cambridge University Press. My first book, co-authored with Ilia Murtazashvili, is The political economy of fracking, forthcoming by Routledge.
