 Jesus Felipe


Principal Economist, Head of the Strategic Research Unit, and Director of Research of the Central Asia Regional Economic Cooperation (CAREC) Institute, in Central and West Asia Department of the Asian Development Bank (ADB), Manila, Philippines. Previously, I was Economist, Senior Economist and Principal Economist in the Macroeconomics and Finance Research Division of the Economics and Research Department. I joined ADB in 1996. I held academic positions with the Hong Kong University of Science and Technology (Hong Kong, PRC) during 1995-1996, and with the Georgia Institute of Technology (Atlanta, USA), during 1999-2002 (while I was on leave from ADB).

 

I am a Research Associate at the Centre for Applied Macroeconomic Analysis (CAMA), Australian National University, College of Business and Economics; at the Centre of Full Employment and Equity (CofFEE), University of Newcastle (Australia); the Cambridge Centre for Economic & Public Policy, University of Cambridge; and the Center for Full Employment and Price Stability (CFEPS), University of Missouri-Kansas City. I am a member of the Editorial Boards of Metroeconomica and of Journal of Employment and Public Policy. I undertook my undergraduate studies in Spain. I hold Master's degrees from the International University of Japan and from the University of Pennsylvania, and also hold a Ph.D. from the University of Pennsylvania.

 

I work on issues relating to long-run growth in Asia, productivity and technological progress. My research interests spread across areas such as growth (especially the debate on the sources of growth in East Asia), the functional distribution of income, business cycles, the path of profit rates, and structural change. I am also working on a project on industrialization and structural change in Central Asia.

 

I have co-authored and co-edited a book entitled Labor Markets in Asia: Issues and Perspectives (Palgrave Macmillan, 2006). This book was selected in 2006 by Princeton University as one of the Noteworthy Books in Industrial Relations and Labor Economics. In 2009 I published Inclusive Growth, Full Employment and Structural Change. Implications and Policies for Developing Asia (Anthem Press, 2009). And I am working on a book on the theoretical foundations of the aggregate production function and its implications for empirical analyses, entitled The Aggregate Production Function and the Measurement of Technical Change: A Critique and Evaluation.

 

I have published my work in the Cambridge Journal of Economics, Journal of Comparative Economics, Eastern Economic Journal, Metroeconomica, Journal of Income Distribution, International Review of Applied Economics, Journal of Development Studies, World Development, Oxford Development Studies, among others.
