Abstract

In 2015 CEMLA and CAF invited central bank researchers to take part in joint research that would be based on data from the financial capabilities surveys of caf and other national financial education and inclusion surveys. The proposal was presented at the 2015 Meeting of the Central Bank Researchers Network in the Dominican Republic. At the end of December 2015, the central banks of Bolivia, Brazil, Colombia, Dominican Republic, Ecuador, Mexico, Peru, and Uruguay, along with CEMLA, confirmed their participation in said research, resulting in the 13 research papers contained in this book. The papers included here take different approaches to analyze household financial decision making, participation in the formal and informal sector, and the role of education in financial decisions. We hope this body of work enriches discussion and leads to a better understanding of these topics, which are key to promoting sustainable development in Latin America and the Caribbean.
