  • Long-Term Care in Latin America and the Caribbean: Theory and Policy
           Considerations
    • Abstract: Worldwide, the process of population aging has increased the need for long-term care (LTC) services to assist the elderly. According to the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services, "Long-term care is a range of services and supports you may need to meet your personal care needs. Most long-term care is not medical care, but rather assistance with the basic personal tasks of everyday life, sometimes called Activities of Daily Living (ADLs)."1 Most LTC-related activities do not require care providers to have acquired highly specialized skills, and customarily family members— typically women—have provided care for people with disabilities.2This traditional arrangement has come under significant stress as a result ...

  • Pension Income Indexation: A Mean-Variance Approach
    • Abstract: The choice of the best indexation measure to adjust pension income is critical in periods of high inflation. Several countries have adopted automatic indexation using either the consumer price index (CPI) or an index linked to nominal earnings, or even a combination of both.1 From a policy perspective, understanding what income path best matches consumption needs during retirement years is a highly important question because of the increasing number of retirees. Recent reforms in pension systems that replaced defined benefit with defined contribution schemes imply the transfer of risk from employers to employees. In this new setting, annuities need to be linked to indexes that represent the changes in the cost of ... Read More

  • The Impact of Police Presence on Drug-Trade-Related Violence
    • Abstract: Drug-trade-related violence has been a major issue over the last decades in some Latin American regions. Since 2007, Mexico has suffered a surge in violence linked to the struggle of drug-trafficking organizations (DTOs) to control traffic routes. Colombia has endured the violence imposed by drug cartels since the early 1980s. In Brazil, the largest cities have witnessed how DTOs can replace the state and exert a monopoly on violence in the most impoverished parts of the city. How to efficiently face DTOs is a relevant policy question for Latin American countries.Favelas in Rio de Janeiro have been under the control of DTOs since the early 1980s, when these criminal syndicates started to use them as their ...

  • Productivity and Reallocation: Evidence from Ecuadorian Firm-Level Data
    • Abstract: Understanding firm productivity and the efficient reallocation of resources is a central issue in industrial economics. Reallocation of resources from low-productivity to high-productivity firms will increase aggregate productivity, but there may be frictions that prevent this reallocation from occurring. These frictions are common in developing countries, and their study is therefore of interest.Our study focuses on the case of Ecuador, a developing small open economy that faced a crisis in 1998–2000 and subsequently undertook deep structural reforms, about which little is known. In this paper, we study the determinants of aggregate productivity growth in Ecuador in the period 1998–2007, when the Ecuadorian ... Read More

  • Can a Small Social Pension Promote Labor Force Participation' Evidence
           from the Colombia Mayor Program
    • Abstract: Noncontributory pensions are becoming increasingly popular within the larger context of social protection systems. The noncontributory label highlights the fact that these pensions are funded not by individuals' payroll contributions—as in the case of traditional social insurance—but through other general fiscal revenues. This term is somewhat imprecise, however, as most beneficiaries of noncontributory pensions have contributed to the economy, including but not limited to paying indirect taxes.1 Noncontributory pensions can also be thought of (perhaps more accurately) as de facto unconditional cash transfers for old age. Indeed, noncontributory pensions account for a major share of unconditional transfers. In ... Read More

  • Sovereign Credit Ratings in Latin America and the Caribbean: History and
           Impact on Bond Spreads
    • Abstract: Over the past fifteen years, one of the most significant trends in global financial markets has been the expanded access to international capital markets by countries that lacked access previously.
