Professor Jan Priewe is an internationaly renowned economist, who has focused his research on subjects dear to the Institute of Economics (IE)/Unicamp, among which: financial crisis; macroeconomic policy and crisis in the euro zone; liberalization and management of capital flows. Therefore, Professor will bring priceless contributions to the debates at IE. We hope the visiting-researcher will give assistance in three researches currently in progress at IE, namely: "Financial crisis in fiduciary currency regimes: the experiences in Latin America and the European Monetary Union"; "The International Monetary System Hierarchy"; "The global financial crisis metamorphosis and emergent economies". This consultancy will be held in loco at the specific meetings for each aforementioned projects. Moreover, afterwards, we could count on Professor Priewe’s support at distance as well, through exchanging messages and teleconferences. Professor Priewe would also hold meetings with graduate students their supervisors whenever they wish. Many students have already shown interest in these meetings, so that Prof. Priewe’s advices for a number of dissertations and thesis would be another major benefit of his stay at IE/Unicamp. His critical analysis of the subjects, hypotheses and paths that have been taken in these graduate researches would certainly be enriching for the ongoing works. Prof. Priewe would contribute to the formation of students and professor, lecturing about two themes of great interest to IE/Unicamp. The lectures would be open for the whole university and certainly would attract students and professors of other institutes of Unicamp, especially of the IFCH. This worth mentioning the institutional relations between the IE/Unicamp and prof. Priewes University (HTW Berlin). Besides to the agreement between the two universities, renovated in 2014, the IE/Unicamp was part of the DAAD partnership on economic development studies" funded by the German agency DAAD and coordinated by prof.
