Jorge Tovar is Associate Professor at Universidad de Los Andes (Bogota, Colombia) and holds a Ph.D. from the University of California, Berkeley. His research initially centered on the use of industrial organization and international trade to understand how trade liberalization and globalization impacted developing countries such as Colombia. In parallel, his interest in economic history led him to study various structural changes, such as the manumission process, that occurred during the independence period in Colombia. Preserving his interest in these fields, he recently drew on them to explore areas such as sports economics and the economics of households and their relevance in Latin America, and Colombia, in particular. Regarding the former, the use of micro event-level data allows him to deepen the understanding of game theory and the ongoing globalization process. On the latter, his work extends to the use of national accounts to micro-level household data to understand patterns of production, consumption, and intergenerational transfers, as well as the relative importance on the unpaid economy.
