Financial Development, Growth, and Inequality: The Role of Institutions in Latin America and the Caribbean
This publication explores the relationships between institutions, financial development, and income inequality. It assesses the extent of reforms that can promote financial development and argues that institutional improvements capable of increasing financial development can simultaneously mitigate income inequality. This work, focusing on the Latin American and Caribbean region, uses a broad set of measures of financial development, financial institutions, and capital markets. It employs a comprehensive set of inequality indicators and income definitions, as well an econometric model of the financial possibility frontier, to demonstrate that institutions contributing to financial development also help reduce income inequality.

10 Years School Construction in Haiti: Technical Learnings from a Multiple Construction Program
In the aftermath of the 2010 Haiti's earthquake, the Government of Haiti faced massive reconstruction needs in all sectors. As part of the response of the Government of Haiti to the massive reconstruction needs, from 2010 to 2020, the IDB designed a series of grant operations plus seven co-financings designed to support a wider School Reconstruction Program. These operations achieved the (re)construction of 90 public schools countrywide, which resulted in the creation of approximately 1,000 classrooms and 40,000 seats, providing a safer and comfortable learning environment for approximately 60,000 children each school year. The journey to complete the construction of the schools was not an easy one to achieve. From the onset, the education sector faced two big challenges: a technical one, how to design and build cost-efficient schools that are both hurricane and earthquake resistant; and an operational one: how to identify a strategy that permits to up-scale construction countrywide while assuring quality and controlling costs. This publication aims to present the lessons learned from the 10-year school construction program in Haiti.

Research Insights: How Can Macro-Prudential Policy Control the Impact of Cross-Border Bank Flows on Emerging Market Economies?
Advanced economies (AEs) transmit economic crisis to Emerging Market Economies (EMEs) through cross-border bank flows, impacting their output, credit, and assets prices. Empirical evidence suggests that the transmission of the crisis from AEs to EMEs is higher in the absence of macro-prudential policy. A macro-prudential policy in the form of a levy on EMEs banks, when credit grows faster than deposits, reduces the propagation of AEs crisis to EMEs: the consumption drop is 12 percent lower, and the reaction of the labor market smoother, so consumers are better off with the policy than without it.

Títulos verdes e sustentáveis não são modismo, são oportunidades que o Brasil deve aproveitar
Na contramão (ou talvez como efeito) do momento desafiador que caracteriza as economias globais, crescem o interesse e o espaço para um filão particular no mercado financeiro mundial: os títulos de dívida temáticos, sobretudo os sustentáveis – ou sustainaible bonds. Segundo cálculos da consultoria BloombergNEF, o volume de emissões de títulos de dívida ligados a princípios sustentáveis cresceu 29% em 2020, pleno ano de pandemia, somando US$ 732 bilhões. Por aqui, embora o mercado brasileiro ainda seja uma pequena
