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.

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.

Advancing the Policy Design and Regulatory Framework for Renewable Energies in Latin America and the Caribbean for Grid-scale and Distributed Generation
The Latin America and the Caribbean (LAC) region holds a comfortable leading place in terms of the share of renewables in the electricity generation matrix, mainly due to the share of hydropower generation, which accounts for 46% of total power generation in 2017. Despite the share of renewable in the generation mix decreased by 8.2% from 2000 to 2016, the generation output of renewables increased by 51%, in absolute terms, during the same period. This has been a consequence of the decrease of renewables costs and the result of many policies applied in the LAC region. In this monograph, we study incentive mechanisms for both grid-scale (large and medium scale generation) and DG (small scale generation installed at the main consumption unit) in LAC.
