Fiscal Rules and the Behavior of Public Investment in Costa Rica and Panama: Towards Growth-Friendly Fiscal Policy?
This paper aims to provide evidence on the effects of fiscal rules on public investment, fiscal results and growth in Costa Rica and Panama. First, we find that the budget formulation process and the political economy behind the adoption and compliance of fiscal rules explain that Panama has a bias to create and sequentially pile up rules, while Costa Rica has a tendency not to comply with them. Second, a retrospective analysis of the 2018 fiscal rules in both nations finds asymmetric effects on the fiscal results. In Panama it is difficult to separate the effect of fiscal rule designs on public investment; and, in Costa Rica, the application of the fiscal rule will decrease public investment, if the debt to GDP ratio exceeds 60 percent and current expenditure crowds out capital expenditure. Two lessons emerge. First, an effective fiscal rule compliance requires time consistent institutions, solid monitoring, enforcement schemes and improving the quality of public financial management systems. Second, it is necessary to review the design of fiscal rules in both countries to ensure they are investment and growth friendly.

Fiscal Rule and Public Investment in Chile
This paper reviews the design and operation of the Chilean fiscal rule in the past 30 years. Using different empirical approaches, we assess its impact on fiscal procyclicality, public debt, and public investment. While there has been substantial progress in building a modern institutional framework for fiscal policy, we find that the rule is incomplete in two dimensions: it lacks an escape clause, and it needs to supplement the budget balance rule with a debt rule. The former is seen in the pervasive inability of the authorities to steer fiscal accounts back to their long-term sustainable path after the rule was breached the rule in 2009. The latter issue is illustrated by the speedy build-up of the public debt as a result of the need to finance fiscal deficits. We do not find, nevertheless, a negative impact of the rule on public investment. We propose reforms to improve on transparency and accountability, as well as to supplement the rule with escape clauses and a debt anchor.

Financial Management Information Systems (FMIS): Project Guide: Strategic, Functional, Technological, and Governance Issues in the Design and Implementation of New Platforms for Public Financial Management Systems
Financial management information systems (FMIS) are essential for economic stability and for improving fiscal efficiency and transparency. It is increasingly important that FMIS provide comprehensive functional coverage, as well as architecture and technologies that are flexible and modular without any loss of efficiency or effectiveness. This FMIS Project Guide describes the strategic, organizational, functional, technological, and operational issues that must be addressed for successful implementation of an FMIS. The Guide is divided into 14 self-contained chapters that may be reviewed separately. They cover all significant aspects of designing, implementing, and operating an FMIS, including detailed coverage of the issues considered critical and alternative approaches for addressing these. Topics addressed include the design and organization of project governance; management and indicators; the legal framework; institutional arrangements; institutional capacity building; conceptual models; public expenditure processes; data models and system requirements; the analysis of alternatives for deciding whether to implement a new system or upgrade an existing one; information security; procurement of hardware, software, and services; system deployment; management models for operating the system; and the use of new emerging technologies such as cloud computing, artificial intelligence, robotic process automation, blockchain, mobile money, and data visualization technologies.
