Ignacio P. Campomanes is a senior advisor at the Atlantic Council’s Freedom and Prosperity Center and a resident fellow at the Navarra Center for International Development, a research center at the University of Navarra in Spain. Previously, he spent one year at the National Bureau of Economic Research in Cambridge, Massachusetts, as a post-doctoral fellow on long term fiscal policy. His research lies at the intersection of political economy, public economics, and development economics. In particular, his work focuses on the institutional determinants of economic development, and how these are mediated by features of the politico-economic environment such as inequality, social mobility, and foreign aid. His work has been supported by the Peterson Foundation, Acton Institute, and the Ramon Areces Foundation. He has taught classes of principles and intermediate macroeconomics at the University of Minnesota, and economic growth and business cycles at the University of Navarra.

Campomanes holds a BA in economics and a BA in law from Carlos III University in Spain, master’s degrees in economics from Complutense University of Madrid and the University of Minnesota, and a PhD in economics from the University of Minnesota.
