Henry Mau is a research associate for A Path for Europe. His research interest spans from the macroeconomic implications of fiscal policy, particularly the dynamics and mechanics behind sovereign debt, over the laws of demand and supply translated onto the political market to emerging technologies in the financial sector such as distributed ledger technology or quantum computing. Henry is also currently researching the implications of a digital “dollarization” through the emergence of central bank digital currencies on the intersection of foreign and monetary policy.
