Los Bonos Soberanos Sostenibles como instrumentos básicos de financiación para el desarrollo sostenible
A pesar de su corta historia, los Bonos Temáticos Soberanos han surgido como una interesante oportunidad para que los países de América Latina y el Caribe (ACL) canalicen eficazmente los mercados de capitales nacionales e internacionales hacia las inversiones sostenibles. Mientras los países intentan financiar sus esfuerzos de recuperación y aprovechar el creciente interés por las inversiones responsables y sostenibles, los tesoreros de la región han considerado cada vez más los bonos sostenibles como una oportunidad para acceder a los mercados nacionales e internacionales para canalizar el capital hacia la oportunidad de inversión estimada en más de un billón de dólares de una recuperación verde.

Developing Domestic Bond Markets for Growth and Stability
Countries in Latin America and the Caribbean have sought to develop deep and well-functioning domestic bond markets since the beginning of the 21st century—a reaction in part to the financial crises of the 1990s and their relationship to government borrowing abroad, mainly in foreign currencies. As a result, the outstanding level of marketable public debt

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.

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.

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.
