  • Informality and Optimal Public Policy
    • Abstract: The size of the informal sector is close to 40 percent in many developing economies, especially in many Latin American countries.1 Moreover, informality levels are on the rise in many developing economies. According to Perry and others, informality levels grew in most Latin American countries between the late 1980s and the early 2000s.2 As pointed out in La Porta and Shleifer, the informal sector has extremely low productivity compared to the formal economy, since informal firms tend to be smaller and inefficient.3This article explores optimal public policy, in terms of the level of tax enforcement and the supply of public goods, in an economy characterized by a huge informal sector, where the size of the informal ...

  • Consumers as VAT "Evaders": Incidence, Social Bias, and Correlates in
           Colombia
    • Abstract: This paper examines tax evasion, a phenomenon that is key to understanding the nature of the state and democratic institutions. Tax evasion is not simply a specific type of crime. Decisions about whether or not to pay taxes are also influenced by levels of general trust in the state and compliance with society's implicit social contract: citizens pay taxes, and the state, in turn, delivers public goods. A long tradition in the social sciences relates state capacity to the development of an effective tax capacity.1 The incidence of tax evasion thus captures the state's ability to enforce collection and mobilize resources, as well as citizens' level of resistance against the state. In other words, it is related to ... Read More

  • Contagion, Spillover, and Interdependence
    • Abstract: Almost every paper on contagion starts with a definition of what exactly the author means by contagion and spillover. I would like this paper to be an exception—first and foremost because my own definition of contagion has shifted over time. For example, I have sometimes defined contagion strictly as the unexpected or surprising component of the transmission of shocks across countries; at other times as a change in the behavior during crises; and lately as purely any form of propagation across countries, irrespective of the circumstances. Interestingly, whatever the definition of contagion I used at any particular point in time, all of them were (and still are) a common feature of the data. This was good, because I ... Read More

  • Do Gender Disparities Exist Despite a Negative Gender Earnings Gap'
    • Abstract: Gender wage gaps have declined in many countries in recent decades, but the unexplained component attributed to this gap has not decreased.1 In 2009, Puerto Rico became the first country (when compared to international databases) in which women's median earnings are above men's median earnings. This outcome is matched by the second-lowest difference in the world in labor participation rates between genders in 2012. Does a closed gender gap represent an absence of gender disparities' If not, what type of gender disparities persist despite the closed gap' These are the questions we seek to address in this article.Arulampalam, Booth, and Bryan find that in many European countries, the overall gender earnings gap ...

  • Resource Windfalls and Public Sector Employment: Evidence from
           Municipalities in Chile
    • Abstract: To compensate citizens affected by the natural resource extraction process, several resource-abundant countries have turned to fiscal decentralization policies that transfer the management of resource revenues to local governments. However, a vast economic literature highlights the potential adverse outcomes of resource windfalls through the political process. Most of these studies focus on cross-country comparisons or do not directly test the specific channels through which resource windfalls operate.1 In contrast, this paper exploits the 2005 reform of the mining law in Chile, which suddenly increased the portion of the income collected from mining licenses that is assigned to municipalities where mining ...

  • Cash, Conditions, and Child Development: Experimental Evidence from a Cash
           Transfer Program in Honduras
    • Abstract: Conditional cash transfer programs (CCTs) have been used in many settings to alleviate poverty and incentivize behavior changes in low-income families. These behavioral changes mainly include increasing school attendance and improved use of medical services. Attaching conditions to the cash is intended to lower the opportunity cost of activities that promote human capital development as compared to labor, which ultimately increases the probability that households will grow out of poverty.CCTs have been shown to have effects that extend beyond those directly implied by the conditions. The literature indicates that in addition to affecting school attendance and the frequency of health checkups, CCTs influence other ... Read More
