About Rizwan Kazi
Hello! I'm Rizwan, a student at Columbia University born and raised in New York City majoring in Economics-Mathematics and concentrating in Philosophy. My research interests include development economics, environmental economics, political economy, and institutional, post-Keynesian, and new Keynesian theory. I'm especially interested in institutional development on the subnational, national, and international level and how the synergy of the three can be applied to policy goals such as peace, environmental protection and poverty alleviation.
