Comprender la desigualdad de ingresos: el papel de la productividad empresarial
La productividad ha sido reconocida durante mucho tiempo como un determinante clave que moldea las disparidades de ingresos entre países. Estudios recientes sugieren que cerca de la mitad de las diferencias en los ingresos per cápita pueden atribuirse a diferencias en la productividad. Sin embargo, surge la pregunta: ¿qué factores contribuyen a la productividad agregada?

Easing the Credit Crunch on Small and Medium-Sized Enterprises

Apoio às MPMEs na crise da COVID-19: desafios do financiamento para resiliência e recuperação
Esta monografia analisa o impacto da pandemia da COVID-19 nas micro, pequenas e médias empresas (MPMEs) brasileiras, e o papel do Sistema Nacional de Fomento (SNF) para a implementação de medidas visando ao aumento da resiliência e à recuperação do segmento. O estudo argumenta que a crise econômica decorrente da pandemia da COVID-19 atingiu as MPMEs brasileiras em situação ainda mais delicada do que usualmente se reconhece. A participação expressivamente menor do segmento no total da carteira de crédito do sistema financeiro nacional, o percentual mais alto em modalidades de crédito inapropriadas e as taxas de juros e de inadimplência mais elevadas se combinaram com a piora abrupta e acentuada na percepção de risco das instituições financeiras e causaram, de imediato, “empoçamento” de recursos para empresas de menor porte, a despeito dos esforços governamentais no relaxamento da política monetária e no estabelecimento de linhas de crédito com recursos fiscais. Por outro lado, a ação contracíclica das instituições financeiras de desenvolvimento (IFDs) integrantes do SNF foi de grande relevância para atender às necessidades das MPMEs e possibilitar alternativas que viabilizassem a destinação adequada dos recursos, em condições apropriadas. O estudo identifica a importância de que o SNF apoie negócios de menor porte com potencial de crescimento e encadeamento em cadeias mais dinâmicas, tendo em conta seu mandato institucional, a importância das MPMEs em termos de geração de postos de trabalho e renda, e a busca por níveis mais elevados de produtividade. O estudo defende a necessidade de foco e coordenação entre os programas oficiais adotados, de forma a equacionar os dilemas entre vulnerabilidade e viabilidade no financiamento às MPMEs, provendo alternativas que aliem as necessidades emergenciais de recuperação à promoção do aumento da produtividade e da resiliência do segmento a futuras crise.

During the peak of the COVID-19 crisis, governments in Latin America and the Caribbean aided firms and households with support packages coordinated with central bank monetary policy.

Understanding Income Disparities: The Role of Firm-Embedded Productivity
Productivity has long been recognized as a key determinant of global income disparities between countries. Recent studies suggest that around half of the differences in income per capita can be attributed to productivity variations. However, the question arises: what factors contribute to aggregate productivity? One prevailing view suggests that aggregate productivity is influenced by firm-embedded

Productive Development Policies in the Mining Value Chain: Policy Opportunity and Alignment
Natural resources are an important source for development, and Latin America is one of the regions with the highest endowment. This calls for a reconsideration of resource-based development. Ambitious countries are moving toward high-value activities and more diversified economies to continue moving up the development ladder. In this sense, the resurgence of industrial policy can correct market failures and lead to the implementation of mission-oriented policies. This document analyzes opportunities to design and implement integrated policies through a revised taxonomy of mining-related policies, applying it to Australia, South Africa, and Chile. The mining sector has been a fertile field, characterized by high technology niches, growth, and innovation. Demand and supply policies can shape the path for development within the sector and across the economy due to the potential of vertical and horizontal linkages.

Innovation and Competitiveness in Mining Value Chains: The Case of Argentina
Argentina tiene un extraordinario potencial minero, con importantes cantidades de recursos geológicos no explorados ni explotados. A pesar de este potencial, el sector minero no energético sigue siendo de pequeña escala, pues solo representa el 0,5% del PIB y el 3,0% del total de las exportaciones, y se concentra principalmente en unas pocas regiones del país. Este documento estudia la cadena de valor de la minería metálica en Argentina, en particular las oportunidades y los retos que encuentran las empresas nacionales para participar en ella. Ofrece recomendaciones de políticas que pueden ayudar a mejorar las posibilidades de que estas empresas entren y luego se expandan, crezcan y diversifiquen sus clientes y mercados.

Effects of Innovation on Employment: An Analysis at the Firm Level in Bolivia
This study quantifies the impact of process and product innovation on employment growth in Bolivia by using microdata from a survey on innovation conducted in Bolivia in 2016. Following the model of Harrison, Jaumandreu, Mairesse, and Peters (2008) and the adaptations for Latin America of Crespi and Tacsir (2013) and Elejalde, Giuliodori, and Stucchi (2015), we demonstrate that employment growth is explained by product innovation. On the other hand, we find no evidence of a displacement effect due to process innovation. With respect to innovation and work composition, we observe that the reation of qualified employment is slightly favored over that of unqualified employment.
