Modeling Public Policies in Latin America and the Caribbean

image of Modeling Public Policies in Latin America and the Caribbean

The Inter-American Development Bank (IDB) and the Economic Commission for Latin America and the Caribbean (ECLAC) have formed a partnership to promote a regional network of computable general equilibrium (CGE) modellers that facilitates the exchange of analytical findings, techniques and data, with the ultimate objective of better serving policymakers in policy formulation. The regional meetings of CGE modellers, held annually in a different country of the region, have been instrumental in promoting interregional transfer of analytical technologies and in bringing the region closer to international best practices. This book contains a selection of studies discussed in past annual regional meetings on modelling.

Introduction

In response to scepticism over the supposed trickle-down effects of Latin American trade reforms, the region’s policymakers are increasingly focusing attention on the distributive impacts of the reform measures and the channels through which they are transmitted. For their part, economists are developing cutting-edge quantitative methodologies and high-quality databases to support policy analysis in this inherently complex field.
