Graham Wilson, Boston University (USA), Visiting Scientist, ref. prof. Giorgia Nesti.
He is Director of the Initiative on Cities at Boston University. He is conducting research on the relationship between cities and financial institutions. In particular, he is exploring how cities compete to attract financial institutions to their cities and to be global financial centers. In the aftermath of Brexit, many cities (Milan, Paris, Frankfurt and Dublin) have the opportunity to attract financial institutions that London is losing. However this will require the cities and their national governments to adopt taxation and regulatory frameworks that are attractive to financial institutions perhaps at the cost of taxation revenues or measures intended to promote financial stability. He is also conducting research on actions taken by cities to express political viewpoints through financial measures. Amongst the most important of these are divestitures of stock in corporations of whose activities the cities disapprove; notable examples include divestiture from carbon intensive (e.g. oil producing) companies.
