Welcome to the web site of German Caruso


German Caruso is an Argentinean economist working for the World Bank at the Poverty Global Practice Unit. His educational background includes a Ph.D. in Economics from the University of Illinois, Urbana-Champaign in addition to both Master's and Licentiate degrees in Economics from the Universidad de San Andres, Buenos Aires, Argentina. German has recently published articles in the Journal of Development Economics, American Economic Review (P&P), the Review of Income and Wealth, the European Journal of Political Economy and Climatic Change.

As an economist, he is motivated by an interest in reducing poverty in developing countries by translating rigorous economic analysis into clear policy implications. More specifically, his research focuses on poverty measurement, poverty alleviation policies, and the effects of shocks (such as natural disasters, armed conflicts and religiously-induced fasting) on health and human capital accumulation. In his current research he examines the long-term effects and subsequent intergenerational transmission of exposure in childhood to aggregate shocks.
