This program is part of a series of workshops which advance the work of a comprehensive comparative study of the fiscal histories of eleven Latin American countries. A team of economists from Colombia, Ecuador, Mexico, Paraguay and Uruguay will use country-specific data as “case studies,” testing two central hypotheses: first, that bad fiscal and monetary policies led to macroeconomic instability, and second, that macroeconomic instability was responsible for low growth and poor economic performance in this region.
The Becker Friedman Institute gratefully acknowledges support for this program to Donald R. Wilson, Jr., AB ’88 and Edward R. Allen, PhD ’92.
