Latin America and the Caribbean Standardized Public Debt Database: Data as of June 2023
This database compiles current standardized statistics on sovereign debt issuances for the Latin American and Caribbean (LAC) region and contains biannual data starting in 2006 through June 2023. Sovereign debt data is classified by legislation, creditor, currency, and maturity, among other areas, for 26 LAC countries. The availability of valid, comparable, and standardized public debt data is essential for the implementation of sound policies. As such, at the core of the LAC Debt Group initiative is the development of a standardized sovereign debt database to help debt managers, policymakers, and other actors of financial markets analyze the evolution and composition of public debt in the region and conduct cross-country comparisons. LAC public debt offices provided the data in response to a questionnaire specifically designed to allow comparability. The questionnaire, whose response is non-compulsory, is intended to compile current standardized statistics for objective and homogeneous definitions of public debt.

Se buscan empleos de calidad: políticas activas y pasivas de empleo en Colombia. Informe para la Misión de Empleo
Colombia sobresale a nivel internacional por sus grandes dificultades para generar empleos de calidad. Mitigar los riesgos asociados a la pérdida de empleo, a los que tantos ciudadanos están expuestos, difícilmente se puede hacer sin apoyo del Gobierno. En este documento se analiza la oferta en Colombia de dos tipos de políticas públicas: las políticas activas y pasivas. Se muestra que, a pesar de los esfuerzos que ha hecho Colombia para articular las políticas activas y pasivas alrededor de un sistema integrado y de los recursos que ha invertido, la oferta está fragmentada en programas sin una visión unificada y con resultados débiles en muchas dimensiones. La mayor parte de los trabajadores colombianos recibe una baja o nula protección durante los periodos de desempleo o cesantía. Se trata de un problema estructural y antiguo cuyas consecuencias saltaron a la vista de manera dramática ante la crisis que desencadenó la pandemia. Fortalecer las políticas activas y pasivas requiere de consensos políticos importantes, cambios regulatorios e inversiones para el fortalecimiento institucional. El documento presenta una serie de lineamientos de reforma, para mejorar el diseño e implementación de las políticas activas y pasivas y fortalecer la institucionalidad en la que operan. También se discute su complementariedad con la política social y la regulación laboral. Este documento fue escrito en el marco de la Misión de Empleo que convocó el Gobierno de Colombia en el año 2020.

Research Insights: How Can Macro-Prudential Policy Control the Impact of Cross-Border Bank Flows on Emerging Market Economies?
Advanced economies (AEs) transmit economic crisis to Emerging Market Economies (EMEs) through cross-border bank flows, impacting their output, credit, and assets prices. Empirical evidence suggests that the transmission of the crisis from AEs to EMEs is higher in the absence of macro-prudential policy. A macro-prudential policy in the form of a levy on EMEs banks, when credit grows faster than deposits, reduces the propagation of AEs crisis to EMEs: the consumption drop is 12 percent lower, and the reaction of the labor market smoother, so consumers are better off with the policy than without it.

Latin America and the Caribbean Standardized Public Debt Database: Data as of December 2020
The LAC Debt Group believes that to have sound regional policy it is important to have valid, comparable, and standardized data on Latin America and the Caribbean (LAC). Therefore, at the core of the initiative is the development of a standardized sovereign debt database to help debt managers, policy makers, and other actors of financial markets, analyze the composition of public debt in LAC. The information presented in this database is provided by the Debt Management Offices of 26 LAC countries in response to a questionnaire specifically created to allow comparability of data. The questionnaire is intended to compile up-to-date standardized statistics to conduct cross-country comparisons over clear, objective, and homogeneous definitions of public debt.
