Finance Department Chair Dr. Christophe Schinkus co-authored an article in the July 2022 issue of Quality & Quantity Journal. In the article titled “How Do Countries Deal With Global Uncertainty?

Second, while export diversification helps to reduce vulnerable effects on the misery index, economic complexity appears to exacerbate the vulnerable impacts of external shocks on the domestic economy.
