He has also written on the economics of the European Union, including the necessity of a fiscal union and the impact of the sovereign crisis on cross-border mortgage lending. Jaime’s research has been published in journals such as Journal of Economic Theory, Journal of Public Economics, Economic Theory, and Regional Science and Urban Economics.
