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.

Políticas para el financiamiento de cadenas de valor: lecciones aprendidas para intervenciones frente al COVID-19
La pandemia del COVID-19 ha provocado una profunda crisis macroeconómica mundial con caídas históricas en las actividades económicas. Esto ha llevado a la necesidad de ofrecer financiamiento inmediato a empresas para asegurar su supervivencia ante la crisis y para evitar la caída del empleo y la destrucción del tejido productivo de los países. En este escenario, se debe prestar particular atención a las políticas públicas de acceso al crédito y al mercado de capitales. El Banco Interamericano de Desarrollo (BID) introdujo en los últimos años un rasgo innovador en sus programas de cadenas productivas que ha traído resultados positivos. Dicho rasgo consiste en combinar diversos instrumentos de asistencia técnica dirigidos a clusters y sectores con fondos destinados a fomentar una mayor asistencia crediticia a las micro, pequeñas y medianas empresas (mipyme). Este documento aborda la problemática del diseño de políticas de desarrollo productivo, en particular aquellas orientadas al financiamiento de mipyme, para luego analizar las lecciones aprendidas de tres programas de financiamiento de cadenas productivas ejecutados por el BID. A partir de este análisis, y tomando en cuenta el impacto de la pandemia del COVID-19 tanto a nivel macroeconómico como entre sectores, este documento propone un conjunto de intervenciones defensivas y constructivas para facilitar el acceso al financiamiento de mipyme. De igual manera, se describen los instrumentos financieros más adecuados de acuerdo con las necesidades y perfil de riesgo de las cadenas involucradas.

The Effects of Management Practices on Effective Tax Rates: Evidence from Ecuador
This paper examines the effects of management practices on effective tax rates (ETR) in a sample of medium and large manufacturing firms in Ecuador. We use a novel data set on management practice scores matched with administrative tax data from the Superintendence of Companies and the Internal Revenue Services of Ecuador based on firms' tax filings. We find that better management practices are positively associated with effective tax rates, defined as the share of tax obligations to profits. This result is robust under various specifications controlling for different covariates, and to different measures of effective tax rates. Furthermore, our findings indicate that the use of fiscal incentives is positively associated with higher effective tax rates. However, firms that use fiscal incentives are able to fatten or reduce their effective tax rates as management practices improved. Overall, our findings suggest that government-sponsored policies that seek to promote better management practices may be self-sustained, if the additional tax revenue expected from better management practices through higher profits is able to cover the cost of the programs.
