La fragilidad de los bancos estadounidenses y los posibles impactos en América Latina y el Caribe
En las últimas semanas, varias quiebras bancarias, así como la gran volatilidad de los precios de las acciones bancarias en Estados Unidos han suscitado enorme preocupación. La quiebra de Silicon Valley Bank (SVB), ocurrida el 10 de marzo y seguida apenas dos días después por la de Signature Bank, conmocionó a muchos observadores. Había esperanzas

A World of Transformation: Moving from Degrees to Skills-Based Alternative Credentials
Postsecondary education is undergoing a period of profound change. One of the most significant changes is the emergence of skills-based, non-degree, alternative credentials as both complements and alternatives to traditional degrees. Several factors have combined to favor these shorter, less expensive, and more versatile ways to gain knowledge and skills for work. The factors include the rigidity and high cost of traditional degrees; the fact that traditional institutions are failing to equip many graduates with the skills they need; and the need to rapidly upskill and reskill workers to meet the increasingly complex demands of modern economies. This report summarizes evidence suggesting a decrease in the value of degrees as a signaling mechanism in the labor market. It also identifies the benefits of alternative, non-degree credentials and makes recommendations on ways to increase their value and acceptance in the market. It remains to be seen whether non-degree alternative credentials are a short-term strategy to close the skills gaps and deal with the transition to adaptive and qualified labor, or a permanent strategy of human capital development.

Research Insights: Why Has COVID-19 Affected Some Cities More than Others?
Algunas de las variables relacionadas con el impacto de la COVID-19 a nivel de las ciudades son similares en contextos muy diferentes. Tanto en Brasil como en Estados Unidos, por ejemplo, la densidad demográfica se asocia con un número más alto de muertes per cápita por COVID-19. Otras variables relacionadas con el impacto local de la pandemia se comportan de manera diferente dependiendo del contexto. En Brasil, en las ciudades con un ingreso medio más alto hubo relativamente menos personas que decidieron quedarse en casa y más muertes por COVID-19; en Estados Unidos sucedió lo contrario. Las ciudades con niveles más altos de vulnerabilidad socioeconómica en Brasil experimentaron más muertes per cápita a pesar de la mayor tendencia de su población a quedarse en casa en los primeros meses de la pandemia.

Education, Income and Mobility: Experimental Impacts of Childhood Exposure to Progresa after 20 Years
In 1997, the Mexican government designed the conditional cash transfer program Progresa, which became the worldwide model of a new approach to social programs, simultaneously targeting human capital accumulation and poverty reduction. A large literature has documented the short and medium-term impacts of the Mexican program and its successors in other countries. Using Progresas experimental evaluation design originally rolled out in 1997-2000, and a tracking survey conducted 20 years later, this paper studies the differential long-term impacts of exposure to Progresa. We focus on two cohorts of children: i) those that during the period of differential exposure were in-utero or in the first years of life, and ii) those who during the period of differential exposure were transitioning from primary to secondary school. Results for the early childhood cohort, 18-20-year-old at endline, shows that differential exposure to Progresa during the early years led to positive impacts on educational attainment and labor income expectations. This constitutes unique long-term evidence on the returns of an at-scale intervention on investments in human capital during the first 1000 days of life. Results for the school cohort - in their early 30s at endline - show that the short-term impacts of differential exposure to Progresa on schooling were sustained in the long-run and manifested themselves in larger labor incomes, more geographical mobility including through international migration, and later family formation.

A Bridge to the Future: How the Rise of the Miami Startup Ecosystem can Become a Platform to Transform the Americas
This study analyzes the rise of the Miami startup ecosystem and the opportunities for mutual benefit engendered by a strong connection with Latin America and the Caribbean (LAC). The exponential technology revolution and the boom of the LAC startup ecosystem creates a massive opportunity to build a talent-driven network of startup and knowledge ecosystems that could generate trillions of dollars in value and millions of employment, while igniting the industries of the future across the Hemisphere. The recent rise of the Greater Miami area's innovation ecosystem opens the possibility to unleash value and growth through building a bridge that connects ecosystems across the Americas.

Interaction between Rural and Urban Areas in Water and Sanitation Management: A Strategy for the Santiago Water Company in the Dominican Republic (CORASSAN)
In 2019, an urban-rural integration project was designed in the province of Santiago, Dominican Republic, which incorporates a commitment to strengthen the provincial public operator CORAASAN in a field, rural, in which its presence had been limited. This document presents the intervention strategy for the improvement of the rural water and sanitation service that was designed specifically for the project, as well as the methodology followed for its preparation, the challenges that had to be overcome in the process, and the main lessons learned.

Why Does COVID-19 Affect Some Cities More than Others?: Evidence from the First Year of the Pandemic in Brazil
This paper investigates what explains the variation in impacts of COVID-19 across Brazilian cities. I assemble data from over 2,500 cities on COVID-19 cases and deaths, population mobility, and local policy responses. I study how these outcomes correlate with pre-pandemic local characteristics, drawing comparisons with existing US estimates when possible. As in the United States, the connections between city characteristics and outcomes in Brazil can evolve over time, with some early correlations fading as the pandemic entered a second wave. Population density is associated with greater local impact of the disease in both countries. However, in contrast to the United States, the pandemic in Brazil took a greater toll in cities with higher income levels consistent with the fact that higher incomes correlate with greater mobility in Brazil. Socioeconomic vulnerabilities, such as the presence of slums and high residential crowding, correlate with higher death rates per capita. Cities with such vulnerabilities in Brazil suffered higher COVID-19 death rates despite their residents' greater propensity to stay home. Policy responses do not appear to drive these connections.
