Una década de reformas en América Latina: ¿Ha producido una menor inestabilidad?

  • Michael Gavin
Registered author(s):

    (Disponible en idioma inglés únicamente) ¿Se han hecho menos inestables las economías latinoamericanas como resultado de la estabilización económica y las reformas estructurales puestas en práctica durante la última década? La respuesta es un sí condicionado. Las reformas han ayudado en algo, pero hay que hacer más para asegurar la estabilidad macroeconómica que se necesita para que haya un crecimiento acelerado y más equitativo a largo plazo en la región. Las reformas estructurales han ayudado a reducir la inestabilidad, pero ésta sigue siendo elevada según los parámetros internacionales y no se ha reducido en todos los países. Este trabajo ofrece un programa de políticas y sugiere aspectos de análisis en cuatro áreas claves: i) ¿Cómo se le puede dar más estabilidad a la gestión fiscal? ii) ¿Cómo puede contribuir la gestión de los mercados financieros internos a reducir la volatilidad económica? iii) ¿De qué modo se pueden gestionar los ingresos de capitales? iv) ¿Qué papel desempeña el régimen cambiario?
