Jean-Philippe Bonardi is a Professor of Business Economics and Strategic Management at HEC Lausanne (Faculty of Business and Economics of the University of Lausanne, Switzerland). His research concentrates on the interface between Political Economy and Business Strategy, and uses theoretical tools coming from institutional economics, Public Choice or Austrian economics. In particular, he looks at firms' nonmarket activities, i.e., how firms manage their relationships with governments, international organizations, the media, interest groups, NGOs or activists. He is therefore interested in the business-public policy interface both in a local and a global context. In its current work, Professor Bonardi also studies the impact of monetary policies and macroeconomic phenomena on business strategies.
