Jorge Luis García
I am an applied microeconomist at the John E. Walker Department of Economics at Clemson University. My research focuses on the intersection of labor and development economics. I use reduced-form and structural methods traditionally associated with labor economics to try to understand, design, and evaluate social policies that contribute to developing the economic conditions of countries and the well-being of their individuals. The themes of my recent papers are education, fertility, female labor supply, and religion. I teach economics of education at the undergraduate level and advanced applied econometrics for Ph.D. students.
My other affiliations include: Visiting Research Fellow at Duke University’s Social Science Research Institute, Quintiles Fellow at the Schaeffer Center for Health Policy and Economics of the University of Southern California, Fellow at the Hayek Center for the Business of Prosperity of Clemson University, and member of the Early Childhood Interventions Network of the Human Capital and Economic Opportunity (HCEO) working group. Earlier this year, I visited the Institute on Behavior and Inequality (briq) as a Senior Visiting Fellow.
