Policy Strategies to Accelerate Economic Growth in the Infrastructure Sector of the Andean Region Countries
The objective of this technical cooperation is to boost the growth of the Andean countries through the intensive and sustainable expansion of the infrastructure sector. The TC will study the limitations and potential of this sector of the economy to help accelerate the growth of the economies of each country, with emphasis on proposing public policies and private incentives that allow the expansion of the sector. Investment in infrastructure has two important effects on growth. The first is the generation of demand. The second is the positive impact on the competitiveness of the rest of the economic sectors. The TC will identify infrastructure projects with high returns and feasible solutions to overcome the obstacles that impede their development. The specific objectives are: 1) Develop an infrastructure investment strategy that is aligned with sustainability principles and that generates the greatest economic and social impact in each country of the Andean region, through the use of quantitative and qualitative tools for prioritization of projects; 2) Examine the impact of these projects on economic growth, welfare and private investment; 3) Identify and propose practical solutions to the main restrictions that currently impede the viability of these projects. In particular, specific proposals will be presented to overcome: (i) fiscal constraints that limit the ability of governments to implement a multisectoral infrastructure agenda, (ii) obstacles to the development of financing mechanisms and the participation of the private sector in infrastructure , including the study of guarantee funds to stimulate the investment of private capital in infrastructure; and (iii) institutional weaknesses related to national investment systems that limit the efficiency of infrastructure. All this will make it possible to provide policy recommendations that can be assimilated by the governments of the Andean region and that improve the Bank's position in the dialogue on the acceleration of economic growth through the development of the infrastructure sector.

Economia do Comportamento para Melhores Políticas Públicas
Prazo de inscrição: 27 de Agosto, 2024Nos últimos anos, cada vez mais governos e formuladores de políticas têm percebido que, para serem verdadeiramente bem-sucedidas, as políticas públicas devem considerar a forma como os indivíduos se comportam e tomam decisões. Com essa premissa, este curso se propõe a ensinar os conceitos fundamentais da economia do comportamento e como estes diferem da visão do modelo econômico tradicional. O curso também introduz ferramentas que podem ajudar a promover a tomada de melhores decisões e apresenta casos reais de intervenções em que esses “empurrões” foram usados para aprimorar as políticas públicas em países da América Latina e de outras partes do mundo.

Taxation when Markets are not Competitive: Evidence from a Loan Tax
We study the interaction of market structure and tax-and-subsidy strategies utilizing pass-through estimates from the unexpected introduction of a loan tax in Ecuador, a quantitative model, and a comprehensive commercial-loan dataset. Our model generalizes bank competition theories, including Bertrand-Nash competition, credit rationing, and joint-maximization. While we find the loan tax is distortionary, neglecting the possibility of non-competitive lending inflates estimated tax deadweight loss by 80% because non-competitive banks internalize some of the burden. Conversely, subsidies are less effective in non-competitive settings. If competition were stronger, tax revenue would be 10% lower. The findings suggest that policymakers should consider market structure in tax-and-subsidy strategies.

The Promises of Digital Bank Accounts for Low-income Individuals
The push for adopting digital modes of payment rests on three promises: increased efficiency of transactions, increased financial inclusion, and improvements in the financial well-being of low-income individuals. We experimentally test the extent to which these promises are fulfilled. We exploit the random assignment into an intervention to encourage direct deposits of recurrent government benefits into digital bank accounts in Colombia. Switching from cash to direct deposits reduces disbursement errors and increases access to benefits among eligible beneficiaries. It also increases the ownership of bank accounts, the demand for formal loans, and loan take-up among individuals without a financial history. However, we do not find evidence of improvements in financial well-being across any of our metrics.

MICI Reflections: Access to Remedy and Dispute Resolution: Contributions to the Conversation Based on MICI's Experience
The notion of remedy has gained importance and become a central issue on the international development agenda, despite accountability mechanisms and financial institutions have been subject to continued criticism in terms of their ability to provide effective remedy for communities claiming to be affected by development projects. This note aims to explore the role of alternative dispute resolution in access to remedy, and to specifically examine the contributions that MICIs Consultation Phase has made in providing solutions to communities that believe they have been adversely affected by IDB Group-financed development projects between 2017 and 2022.
