2024-06-20: Falcone in Innovaspain about left vs. right: it all started in the Reconquista
Stefano Falcone (IAE-CSIC and BSE) showcases his project "Property and Class", which is supported by the ComFuturo (Fundación General CSIC) program, in Innovaspain. His project aims to uncover the historical roots of redistributive conflicts and the differing stances of the political left and right, with a particular focus on the legacy of the Reconquista in Catalonia and its impact on land inequality and political tensions. His research highlights how historical land inequality has fueled class conflicts and continues to influence contemporary political leanings.

2024-04-17: Abc reports on Krauss's study about the characteristics of the scientists who have made the greatest discoveries in science
An article in the Spanish newspaper Abc reports on the findings of a recent study by Alexander Krauss (IAE-CSIC, BSE, and LSE). His study examines the characteristics of scientists behind major scientific discoveries, finding that those with interdisciplinary backgrounds account for a large portion of major breakthroughs. The study also highlights a trend towards increasing age and elitism among discoverers, with top universities contributing notably. The findings suggest that by offering increased incentives, science agencies and research institutions could encourage researchers to break away from the prevailing trend of narrow specialization and instead promote interdisciplinary research, integrating innovative methods across different fields, potentially leading to more discoveries.

2024-03-07: Farré, interviewed by "La Caixa", on the importance of gender economics for a hopeful future
Lídia Farré (IAE-CSIC and BSE) discusses the economic inefficiency and social injustice of gender disparities, advocating for policies promoting equal opportunities and shared domestic duties.
