The Impact of Financial Education for Youth
This paper evaluates if the excitement about school-based financial education is warranted. First, relying on recent experimental evidence, the paper takes stock of the impact of financial education programs aimed at reaching children and youth. Second, it complements existing studies by focusing on the potentially negative unintended effects of these programs. Relying on data from a large-scale randomized controlled trial (RCT) in Peru, this paper investigates whether financial education programs have spillover effects on academic outcomes or if they widen initial inequalities due to heterogeneous treatment impacts. While delivery models that incorporate a mandatory course requirement yield large and robust impacts on financial literacy, voluntary after school programs yield meager effects. These gains do not come at the cost of pervasive effects on the probability to pass a grade. Moreover, the impact of school-based financial education seems to be very inclusive, as treatment effects tend to be uniform across different sub-samples.

El Estado como Buen Pagador: la estructuración de garantías y otros instrumentos de pago para atraer inversiones de alta calidad en América Latina y el Caribe
Los Documentos de Discusión - PPP Américas 2021 componen una serie de textos desarrollados en preparación de la X Edición del PPP Américas, el principal foro de Asociaciones Público-Privadas (APP) de América Latina y el Caribe (ALC), organizado cada dos años por el Banco Interamericano de Desarrollo (BID). Con motivo de la edición del PPP Américas 2021, se reunieron ocho grupos temáticos de expertos, profesionales, consultores y académicos involucrados directamente en la planificación, identificación, estructuración y gestión de proyectos de infraestructura mediante Asociaciones Público-Privadas (APP) en los países de la región. Los grupos, bajo la coordinación de especialistas del BID, revisaron los principales temas de interés y actualidad en el ámbito de las APP en infraestructura económica y social, con el objeto de intercambiar experiencias, debatir casos de éxito y lecciones aprendidas. El presente documento de discusión “El Estado Buen Pagador” recoge las principales conclusiones y recomendaciones derivadas de los debates de ese grupo temático, y pretende contribuir a la consolidación de un ambiente de intercambio de conocimiento en infraestructura y APP en la región, ofreciendo mejores prácticas en la estructuración de garantías y otros instrumentos de pago, para atraer inversiones de alta calidad en América Latina y el Caribe.

Aprendizagem online: a próxima fronteira para capacitar servidores públicos no Brasil?
No Brasil, o ensino a distância (EAD) vem crescendo de maneira sem precedentes, no ambiente universitário, educativo e corporativo. Somente nas universidades 1,5 milhão de estudantes estavam ativos na modalidade em 2018. A expansão aconteceu especialmente a partir de 2005, quando a EAD foi reconhecida como modalidade de ensino no país. Estima-se que em 2023,

Tecnolatinas 2021: The LAC Startup Ecosystem Comes of Age
A startup revolution is unfolding in Latin America and the Caribbean (LAC). Latin entrepreneurs are demonstrating world-class vision, business skills, and grit. They are transforming our lives for the better, generating jobs at scale, and delivering massive value for their shareholders. There are 1,005 technology companies born in the region that raised over $1 million. These companies are collectively worth $221 billion, raised $28 billion, include 28 companies worth more than $1 billion, and have over 245,000 employees. Accelerated growth has been witnessed throughout the broader ecosystem. Its value multiplied by 32 times in the last decade, going from an estimated $7 billion in 2010 to $221 billion in 2020. Most of the growth took place in the past four years. Tecnolatinas have shown they can grow and prosper even in difficult contexts: while their value grew from $7 billion to $221 billion in the last decade, the leading 40 publicly-listed traditional companies from across the region saw their market capitalization fall by $489 billion. The revolution is accelerating: the time to achieve a $1 billion valuation has been steadily decreasing with the help of digital technologies and solutions, such as mobile and cloud computing, and more mature ecosystems. While it took decades for pioneers such as Totvs to achieve that value, the latest unicorns (such as C6, Loft, Ualá) achieved that status less than three years after they were founded. Geographic strategies vary across LAC: while Brazilian startups focus on their local market, startups from the rest of the region are forced to internationalize in order to scale. In Brazil, 83% of the Tecnolatinas have local strategies and represent 74% of the ecosystem value. Outside Brazil, 49% of the Tecnolatinas have local footprints, but they only represent 5% of the ecosystem value, with the other 95% of value coming from the 51% of companies with regional or global strategies. The need for internationalization partly explains the asymmetry between Brazil and the rest of LAC and represents a challenge for entrepreneurs and local policymakers that calls for regional collaboration. Fintech and E-commerce represent 72% of the ecosystem value and are the leading sectors across the region in terms of value. But startup activity is spreading across sectors and we identified 16 sectors with companies worth more than $500 million. The Tecnolatinas ecosystem is poised for continued growth and can play a critical role in building a future of abundance, inclusion, and regeneration in LAC. A valuation of over $2 trillion and more than $30 billion of annual venture capital investments by 2030 would be consistent with international benchmarks and with LACs current trajectory. We highlight eight levers to achieve this potential: igniting unactivated countries, activating Deep Tech, activating medium-sized metropolitan areas, facilitating internationalization, strengthening corporate VC, scaling immature digital sectors, increasing focus on inclusion and regeneration, and increasing female representation. The study is divided into four chapters. The first chapter provides an ecosystem overview. It shows that the LAC startup revolution is exploding and has reached a scale and relevance that turns it into a powerful engine of transformation and a force to be reckoned with; the second chapter analyzes the geographic strategies of the Tecnolatinas; the third chapter presents the sectors that dominate ecosystem activity; and the fourth chapter explores future growth potential and new frontiers for the development of the ecosystem.
