Assistant Professor of Economics Emily Conover was an invited speaker at the Impact Evaluation Network meeting that took place in Buenos Aires, Argentina, in August.
At the meeting Conover presented a paper on informal labor markets in Colombia. The paper shows how the expansion of social programs, in particular subsidized health insurance, generated incentives for some people to become informally employed. The IEN network is part of The Latin American and Caribbean Economic Association (LACEA), an international association of economists with common research interests in Latin America.
