Allocative Efficiency of Government Spending for Growth in Latin American Countries
There is scant empirical economic research regarding the way that Latin American governments efficiently allocate their spending across different functions to achieve higher growth. While most papers restrict their analysis to the size of government, much less is known about the composition of spending and its implications for long-term growth. This paper sheds light on how allocating expenditures to investment in quality human and physical capital, and avoiding waste on inefficient expenditures, enhance growth in Latin America. This paper uses a novel dataset on physical and human capital and detailed public spending that includes -for the first time- Latin American countries, which is categorized by a cross-classification that provides the breakdown of government expenditure, both, by economic and by functional heads. The database covers 42 countries of the OECD and LAC between 1985 and 2017. There are five main results. First, the estimated growth equations show significant positive effects of the factors of production on growth and plausible convergence rates (about 2 percent). The estimated effect of the physical investment rate is positive and significant with a long-run elasticity of 1.2. Second, while the addition of years of education as a proxy for human capital tends to have no effect on growth, the addition of a new variable that measures quality-adjusted years of schooling as a proxy for human capital turns out to have a positive and significant effect across all specifications with a long-run elasticity of 1.1. However, if public spending on education (excluding infrastructure spending) is added to the factor specification, growth is not affected. This is mainly because, once quality is considered, spending more on teacher salaries has no effect on student outcomes. Therefore, the key is to increase quality, not just school performance or education spending. Third, both physical and human capital are equally important for growth: the effect of increasing one standard deviation of physical capital or human capital statistically has the same impact on economic growth. Fourth, increasing public investment spending (holding public spending constant) is positive and significant for growth (a 1% increase in public investment would increase the long-term GDP per capita by about 0.3 percent), in addition to the effect of the private investment rate. However, the effect of public spending on payroll, pensions and subsidies does not contribute to economic growth. Fifth, the overall effect of the size of public spending on economic growth is negative in most specifications. An increase in the size of government by about 1 percentage point would decrease 4.1 percent the long-run GDP per capita, but the more effective the government is, the less harmful the size of government is for long-term growth.

Options for a Reform of the Mexican Intergovernmental Transfer System in Light of International Experiences
This paper focuses on the design of intergovernmental transfers to reduce vertical and horizontal fiscal imbalances and improve the performance of subnational governments. It provides an overview of international experiences, especially of large federations, with a view to devising viable options for reform of the transfer system in Mexico. While there is no one-size-fits-all ideal model of design and implementation of intergovernmental transfer systems, this analysis points to some lessons that can inform reforms, including the need to view intergovernmental transfers as an integral part of the overall system of intergovernmental fiscal relations; the use of different types of intergovernmental transfers that are best suited to fulfill different objectives; and the incorporation of equalization schemes to address regional disparities. In the light of these experiences, we find that the current Mexican transfer system is too fragmented, is linked to volatile oil revenues, involves substantial discretion in the allocation of a significant portion of the transfers, and lacks sufficient equalizing power. This paper presents and discusses possible reform options and demonstrates that it is altogether possible to reduce transfer dependence to promote effort and fiscal responsibility; simplify the system to increase predictability and ease its administration; eliminate discretion to increase transparency and establish stronger subnational budget constraints; and improve fiscal equalization to promote equity in subnational service delivery. Careful consideration of political economy dynamics is given in the simulations of possible reforms, with a view to minimizing short-term gains and losses as well as political opposition.

Good Practice Recommendations for the Governance and Management of Modern Agricultural Research, Development and Innovation Organizations in Latin America and the Caribbean
There is abundant evidence that well-directed and well-executed investment in public agricultural research, development and innovation (RDI) in Latin America and the Caribbean (LAC) can enhance economies, improve food security and reduce poverty (e.g. Stads et al., 2016). To achieve these benefits, many of LAC's RDI institutions must overcome existing challenges and stimulate greater levels of in-country support for their activities. Since the beginning of this century many LAC nations have made efforts to adapt their national RDI systems to address these challanges with more researchers, wider capabilities, higher levels of academic education and training, renewed governance and management models, and more participatory processes for research prioritization, collaborative networks and public-private investment platforms (Gianoni and Trigo, 2021). The authors agree that well-developed national agricultural research systems with adequate levels of targeted investment supporting trained personnel are essential prerequisites for agricultural productivity improvement promoting economic uplift, greater food security and poverty reduction. In LAC the transformation of the national RDI ecosystem and institutions is needed to meet the current and emerging challenges in the region. According to the identified challenges, the transformations to be tackled will require careful determining of what RDI and institutional models are desired and how to execute these highly inter-connected transformations. Based on their experience, the authors share practical recommendations for policymakers and other stakeholders to accelerate transformative improvements in LAC's agricultural RDI institutions to position them to meet the new challenges.

Los sistemas de pago de la nómina de personal en el sector público y la experiencia internacional
El objetivo de esta publicación es analizar los sistemas de pago de la nómina de personal en el sector público de los países de América Latina y el Caribe (ALC), y compararlos con experiencias de otros países fuera de la región. A partir de un análisis de los enfoques para la organización de los sistemas transversales de gestión en el sector público y de la descripción de casos y alternativas de modelos de implementación de los sistemas de información de nómina en el sector público (SINSP), se presenta una tipología para estos sistemas. Adicionalmente, la información sobre los SINSP en ALC fue relevada mediante una encuesta llevada a cabo en 21 países de la región, lo que posibilitó identificar los principales modelos y estrategias de estos sistemas y elaborar recomendaciones de políticas en el tema.
