Fedesarrollo, a Colombian think tank founded in 1970, promotes economic and social development through studies, publications and debates in various areas of public policy. The studies are financed in a balanced way, by the private sector, the public sector, multilateral entities and domestic and international foundations. Fedesarrollo has been ranked as the #1 think tank in Latin America by the University of Pennsylvania. Its research fields include demographics; labour markets; inequality and poverty; institutions; social and economic development; public policy impact evaluations; and fiscal, monetary, financial and trade policy. A notable example of Fedesarrollo’s influence on policies was a recent reduction in labour taxes.
