Manuel David Cruz

Welcome to my website! I completed my Ph.D. in Economics at Colorado State University in 2023.  I earned a Master’s degree in Economics at Colorado State University in 2019, a Master’s degree in Economic Analysis at the University of Chile in 2013, a Diploma in Corporate Finance at the University of Guayaquil in 2011, and a Bachelor’s degree in Economics at Catholic University of Guayaquil in 2009.
My research interests are mostly in development economics, macroeconomics, and applied econometrics.  I have been working on the interaction between distribution and growth, as well as the ultimate long run effects on the labor market.
