I am a National Council for Science and Technology (Conacyt) Fellow in the Department of Economics at the University of Chicago. I graduated summa cum laude and as valedictorian from CIDE (Mexico) in 2010 with a B.A. in Economics. I visited the University of Chicago in the winter and spring of 2009 as an undergraduate student and received and M.A. in Economics from this university in 2012.

     I am currently a third year Ph.D. student. My research interests include Family Economics, Human Capital Formation and Accumulation, and the Quantitative Study of Socio-Economic Inequality. My current research focuses in two areas: (i) formal and informal labor and credit markets; (ii) early childhood human capital formation and accumulation. The main objective of my research is to understand how market structures and investment choices determine life-cycle and cross-sectional inequality.

My name is Jorge Luis García. I am a labor and applied microeconomist interested in combining the creation of novel datasets with economic and econometric methods to design, understand, and evaluate public and social policies.

I am a PhD Candidate at the Department of Economics of The University of Chicago, a Senior Research Assistant at the Center of the Economics of Human Development, and a member of the Early Childhood Interventions Network of the Human Capital and Economic Opportunity (HCEO) Global Working Group.

My job market paper studies fertility in China between 1970 and 2010, with a special focus on the effect that the One-Child Policy had on the decrease in fertility after its enactment.
