Dustin Voss is a PhD candidate in Political Economy of Europe working on institutional change in European financial systems. He is particularly interested in the power of finance, the politics of financialization, and the effects on corporate governance.

More broadly, his research interests include comparative finance capitalism, the politics of growth models, and the relationship of democracy and capitalism.

Recently, Dustin published his first book titled Money: A Theory of Modern Society (Routledge), co-authored with Nico Stehr. The book is also available in German with Velbrück publishers.

Dustin holds an MSc in Political Economy of Europe (with distinction) from the LSE as well as a BA in Sociology, Politics and Economics from Zeppelin University (Germany). He teaches LSE courses on the Political Economy of Advanced Nations and Power and Politics in the Modern World.
