David Bieri is Associate Professor of Urban Affairs at Virginia Tech, with a joint appointment in the Global Forum on Urban and Regional Resilience (GFURR) and in the School of Public and International Affairs (SPIA). His main research and teaching interests are at the intersection of regional economics, public finance and economic geography.
David's current research examines the spatial dynamics of money, credit and banking and their respective roles in the processes of urbanization and financialization. His other research explores the role of nonmarket interactions and their monetary-financial consequences, in particular the growing importance of locational sorting as a determinant for the spatial flow of credit. David also writes about regulatory aspects of international finance, global monetary governance, and the history of monetary thought.
