Some questions that Wolf von Laer tries to answer in his research: 

  • How do the main stake-holders (bureaucracy, legislators, voters, interest-groups) respond to a crisis?
  • Does public choice explain the changes of behavior one observes throughout crises?
  • Is behavioral science a better explanation for some of the processes observed within crises?
  • Is regime-uncertainty a good explanation for the slow US American recovery after the Great Recession (co-author Dr. Adam Martin)?
