Short Bio

Mária Lackó started her research work in the Institute of Economics, Hungarian Academy of Sciences in 1973, following her graduation from the Karl Marx University of Economics (now Corvinus Euniversity), Budapest. Between 1973 and 1991 she contributed to the work of the group led by János Kornai, where she dealt with planners' behavior, the shortage phenomena and investment cycles in centrally planned economies. The main themes of her research are: the measurement, causes, consequences of the hidden economy; the effects of tax rates and corruption on the labor market and fiscal developments in both developed and transition countries. In recent years, in association with her winning international research grants Lackó was guest scholar in different Austrian research institutes (IIASA, Department of Economics of the Johannes Kepler University of Linz and WIIW).
