Jorge Alonso

Full time professor

Jorge’s research interests are focused on macroeconomics and labor economics. Most of his work relates to understanding how cross country differences in labor market institutions are related to cross country differences in labor supply.  Right now, his research agenda is focused on understanding how the duality of social protection in Latin America is related to the large share of the population that does not contribute to social security in these countries.

Jorge is interested in advising students with thesis ideas in labor economics, such as minimum wages, frictional labor markets or informality. He is also broadly interested in development from a macroeconomic perspective, and in inequality.
