Welcome to my webpage!
I received my Doctoral degree in Economics from the New School for Social Research, NY, and my Ph.D. dissertation was awarded the Edith Henry Johnson Memorial Award in Economics. I received my M.A. and B.A. in Economics from the National Autonomous University of Mexico (UNAM), graduating with the highest honors in both degrees. I have taught economics at the UNAM, CUNY, the New School, and currently I am a Lecturer Professor of Economics at SUNY New Paltz, NY.
My scholarly work focuses on the study of the main macro-structural problems of developing economies, especially those associated with changes in the exchange rate (e.g. capital inflows/outflows, currency misalignments, patterns of international trade, balance of payment problems, and income inequality). My scholarly work also focuses on the study of the evolution of the industrial sector of the U.S. economy and its impacts on developing economies. I have been trained under the Classical, Post-Keynesian, and Latin American structuralism traditions, so my research reflects those economic views –which are not always mutually exclusive–, and is supported by the analysis of data, the use of econometrics and other mathematical tools.
On this page you can download my CV with more detailed information about my background and experience, and all my published works can be found in the Publication section. Click on the Academic Resources tab, and you will find data associated with my publications as well as working papers, useful econometric resources (e.g. tips and mathematical proves), and, from time-to-time, forecasts of key economic variables. The Blog section of the page contains videos and comments about economic theory and history as well as current trends of the U.S. economy and developing economies, especially the Mexican economy. My contact information can be found in the last tab. Thank you, and I hope you enjoy my webpage.
