Additional Information
About My Work
My work is at the intersection of political economy, law and finance. Currently working on the distributional implications of monetary policy and low-interest rates, arguing that a context of permanently-low interest rates is creating new forms of systemic risk.
Professional Associations
I am an Assistant Professor of Economics at Drew, Economic Advisor at The Predistribution Initiative, a former Research Fellow at the Open Society Foundations, as well as a core faculty member of the Brooklyn Institute for Social Research.


Raphaële Chappe holds a PhD in Economics from The New School for Social Research, an LL.M from New York University School of Law, a Master’s degree in Comparative Business Law from the University of Pantheon-Sorbonne in Paris, France, and an LL.B in Law and French Law from King’s College London. Her research interests include the link between financial markets and wealth inequality; political economy and the history of economic thought; and the philosophical foundations of microeconomics. More generally she is interested in interdisciplinary research, drawing from insights in economics and the social sciences as well as legal theory to analyze modern capitalism and financial markets. She has practiced as an attorney for eight years in the financial services industry and also teaches at NYU Tandon School of Engineering.
