About J. Ernesto Lopez-Cordova

Welcome to my research website. I am currently Lead Economist for Mexico at the Inter-American Development Bank. My current work focuses on understanding those factors that affect firm performance in Mexico. In the past I've studied several aspects of the global economy, including the impact of remittances on development, the liberalization of the Mexican economy and its implications, and some of the determinants of international trade flows.
