- Sovereign debt
- Political economy
- Game theoretical analysis of Law
Dr Ianulardo’s research is in the area of game theory applied to international political economy, focusing especially on external and domestic sovereign debt, and legal and political institutions. Specifically, he has applied his research to recent default episodes, such as the Argentinean case. Recently, he has been analysing the domestic incentives for debt repayment (political economy).
Another topic he has analysed is a game theoretical interpretation of the law. His paper on Leoni intended to contribute to the innovative interpretations of the law as a claim of the individual made by Bruno Leoni, and in particular refining his notion of the legal system using the tool offered by sequential and Bayesian equilibria not available at the time of Leoni’s writings.
His investigation in this field will be focused on the contractarian approach to the emergence of law and political institutions trying to integrate the insights drawn by authors such De Jasay and Buchanan, Simmons, Narveson, Norman Barry and Michael Taylor. Central to his investigation is the emergence of law and institutions by consent, using the methodological perspective of the rational actor as formalised by game theoretical equilibrium notions such as correlated or evolutionary equilibria.
Dr Ianulardo is currently analysing the political determinants of sovereign debt repayment. His research includes the use of game theoretical tools to formalise the long run relationship between different classes of creditors and the sovereign debtor.
