Rafael R. Guthmann

I am an economist Ph.D. from the University of Minnesota. Currently, I am an assistant professor at UAH.

My work has focused on the study of the intersection between the fields of economics of information, learning, and unawareness with competition, market design, and frictions of trading: the implications of how decision-makers are constrained by their information. For example, consider a decision-maker. This decision-maker has access to a set of options that they can consider in the formulation of their plans. I am interested in the implications of the assumptions that we make about this set of options regarding the allocation of resources in the economy. I am also interested in the ramifications of this research agenda on public economics and models of economic development.
