Published since 1948, this report examines various aspects of the previous year’s macroeconomic situation in the region and makes projections for the coming months. The study also includes country notes that review the performance of the main economic indicators in the period analysed.




In comparison with other periods, the growth of the Latin-American economy has been relatively rapid since the post-war era, due largely to a combination of favourable external factors. These, however, have recently deteriorated, and it is therefore not surprising to observe the reappearance of certain tensions in the balance of payments, which the transitory boom resulting from the Korean War had momentarily disguised.
