Carlos Bethencourt

I am Assistant Professor of Economics at the Department of Economics of the Universidad de La Laguna in Tenerife, Spain.

Macroeconomics and Public Economics are my two main research fields. So I am interested in economic growth, the development process and the interaction with corruption and predation.

Regarding to Public Economics, I am interested in behavioral economics and its applications to tax evasion, criminal activity and macro topics in general. I also have interest in Political Economics and their contribution to explain public finance issues and intergenerational problems.

Population Economics and Household decisions are my other research fields. In particular, I have studied issues of the labor supply and intergenerational composition of households.
