About me

Mario’s PhD thesis studies the fiscal capacity of early 20th century Spain from a regional perspective, focusing in particularon estimating the differences in taxation indicators across provinces and its effects on the provincial economies. He is interested in understanding the determinants of fiscal capacity, how it affects a country’s development path, and at how fiscal and taxation systems can lead to differences across regions from a same country. 

Mario holds an MSc in Economic History (Research) from LSE, and previously studied PPE at the University of Warwick.
