Short bio


Leopoldo Fergusson is an Associate Professor of Economics at Universidad de los Andes in Bogotá, Colombia. He works on political economy, development economics and economic history. In particular, the relation between political and economic institutions and economic performance, the consequences of mass media in politics and economic policy, the political roots and consequences of violent conflict, and the economics and politics of electoral fraud and clientelism. Much of his current work revolves around the political economy of state capacity, seeking to understand the political underpinnings of persistent state weakness. 

Fergusson earned his PhD in Economics from M.I.T. in 2011 and a B.A and M.A in Economics from Universidad de los Andes in 2002 and 2003, respectively.
