    Description: The exchange markets and the exchange rates of Asia and Latin America are studied econometrically. Endogenous structural change and cointegration analyzes and impulse-response functions are used. The findings indicate that: 1) the long-term timing of the exchange markets is low; 2) there is no evidence of synchronization in Asian markets; 3) a stochastic shock in a Latin American country has effects of greater magnitude and duration than a similar shock in an Asian country; and 4) there is no evidence that the Global Financial Crisis has induced structural changes in the dynamics of exchange rates. The daily spot exchange rates of Argentina, Brazil, Chile, China, Colombia, South Korea, India, Malaysia, Mexico and Thailand are used for the period from August 5, 2002 to January 22, 2016.

    Description: Discusses evaluations to assess its relevance and usefulness to the Fomento Ganadero program in Yucatán from 2001 to 2013. Used a longitudinal non-experimental design in the form of trend where recollection (literature review and key informant interviews) and analysis of information (principles on meta-evaluation of Diaz and Pacheco) was sustained in a mixed approach, qualitative and quantitative. Found that the assessments made to Fomento Ganadero in Yucatan in the period of interest, were generally of low quality and very shallow in terms of internal consistency of its coherence, rules of operation, quality, effectiveness and efficiency, impact, focus and sati sfaction of their beneficiaries, i.e. that its coherence not expressed itself in operating rules that define with precision indices of efficiency and effectiveness that sought to achieve the program, in a focus around the priority activities and target population that would benefit in the State and, in the precision of the parameters of impact and sa tisfaction which sought to achieve.

    Description: The process of dismantling a nuclear power plant involves a series of economic activities, linked to economic sectors other than energy, which represent an opportunity for economic development, not only for the local communities where the power plant is located, but also for the rest of the society. Currently, the Spanish nuclear power plants have an average operating life of 33 years and in a decade will end its design life, so it is of interest to know the economic impact that will have its dismantling. For this, in this paper a multisectorial model is developed with which the impact of the dismantling process is analyzed, which includes both the closure of the plants, as well as the substitution of other energy sources and the management of radioactive waste.

    Description: Poverty in Andalusia (sout hern region of Spain wit h a population of 8.411.205 inhabitants) affects 12,8% of its population. In this cont ext, the objective of this paper is to propose ways of reducing this situation of poverty extracted from various questionnaires to experts in the subject, following the Delphi Method. To achieve this objective, first of all, a de scription of the poverty data in Andalusia compared to Spain is provided; t he level of use of information and communication technologies in Andal usian households is deepened; the theoretical foundations of the Delphi method are devel oped to finally apply the Delphi method to the proposal of ways for the reduction of poverty in Andalusia and for the labor incorporation of Andal usian university students. The experts conclude that it would be necessary to create APPs for the information and training of potential worker s and entrepreneurs, both from the private and from the public spheres. They also highlight the need to make use of social networks with an orientation towards the employ ment relationship, encouraging the connection of companies and workers.

    Description: The national statistical institutes face permanently the need to reform and update the statistical criteria and instruments for labor market analysis, as well as to adapt international recommendations for measurement. These processes pose important challenges regarding the comparability of information, necessary to analyze the labor market dynamics. This study presents a consistent methodological approach for the splicing of labor market aggregates based on microeconomic information from household surveys. We analyze the case of the national unemployment rate for Ecuador; assess the potential alternatives for simulation and define a consistent selection criterion for the prognosis and splicing of the series.

    Description: The goal of this paper is to evaluate the impact of the innovation promotion programs carried by the National Research and Innovation Agency (ANII). A combination of non-experimental methods was used to quantify the effects of public support to innovation in three dimensions of the firms' behavior: innova - tion investment, innovation results and economic performance. The results show evidence of crowding-in of public support to innovation. Also, beneficiaries of the programs show larger probability of successfully introducing new products and processes. We do not find impact in the economic performance indicators of the firms.

    Description: This study aims to explore the key factors that may affect the entrepreneurial capacity of students of Higher Education Centers (CES). Once the factors were established, these were grouped into internal and external to the ESCs, then the AHP method was applied to determine the relative weights of each of the criteria to groups of experts belonging to different disciplines and Latin American countries. Through the consensus of the experts, the results indicate that internal factors that most influence the entrepreneurship of their students are "Entrepreneurial Spirit", "Work Experience" and "Performance of specific courses" and as external factors affect to a greater extent "The Networks", "Friends" and "Scope of development". The results of the study can be used as an important reference for educational establishments, to define strategies based on these factors, which help to improve ecosystems within their centers, effectively enhancing the entrepreneurial capacity of their students.

    Description: The informal economy is a phenomenon that affects most of the countries of the world, mainly tax collection potential, the generation of formal employment, productivity and business efficiency. In order to elaborate an inclusive method of the most significant current contributions, an econometric modeling was developed from the monetary method, applying cointegration, Granger causality and the equilibrium correction mechanism; which allowed to remove the possibility of spurious regressions and to make an application to the Ecuadorian economy.

    Description: Las teorías convencionales del capitalismo están sumidas en una profunda crisis: tras siglos de debates todavía son incapaces de decirnos qué es el capital. Tanto liberales como marxistas se refieren al capital como una entidad ‘económica’ que puede ser contabilizada en unidades universales de ‘utilidad’ o de ‘trabajo abstracto’. Pero estas unidades son totalmente ficticias. Nadie ha sido capaz de observarlas ni medirlas, y esto por una buena razón: no existen. Y dado que liberalismo y marxismo dependen de estas unidades inexistentes, sus teorías están suspendidas en el aire. No pueden explicar el proceso que más importa: la acumulación de capital. Este libro ofrece una alternativa radical. De acuerdo con los autores, el capital no es una entidad económica estrechamente identificable, sino una cuantificación simbólica del poder. Tiene poco que ver con la utilidad o el trabajo abstracto, y se extiende más allá de las máquinas y las líneas de producción. El capital, afirman Bichler y Nitzan, representa el poder organizado de los grupos del capital dominante para reconfigurar –o creordenar– su sociedad. Escrito en un lenguaje simple, accesible a lectores neófitos y expertos, este libro desarrolla una economía política novedosa. Conduce al lector a través de la historia, los supuestos y las limitaciones de la economía dominante y sus teorías políticas asociadas, examina la evolución del pensamiento marxista sobre la acumulación y el Estado, y articula una innovadora teoría del ‘capital como poder’, así como una nueva historia del ‘modo de poder capitalista’.
    Description: Conventional theories of capitalism are mired in a deep crisis: after centuries of debate, they are still unable to tell us what capital is. Liberals and Marxists both think of capital as an 'economic' entity that they count in universal units of ‘utils’ or 'abstract labour', respectively. But these units are totally fictitious. Nobody has ever been able to observe or measure them, and for a good reason: they don’t exist. Since liberalism and Marxism depend on these non-existing units, their theories hang in suspension. They cannot explain the process that matters most – the accumulation of capital. This book offers a radical alternative. According to the authors, capital is not a narrow economic entity, but a symbolic quantification of power. It has little to do with utility or abstract labour, and it extends far beyond machines and production lines. Capital, the authors claim, represents the organized power of dominant capital groups to reshape – or creorder – their society. Written in simple language, accessible to lay readers and experts alike, the book develops a novel political economy. It takes the reader through the history, assumptions and limitations of mainstream economics and its associated theories of politics. It examines the evolution of Marxist thinking on accumulation and the state. And it articulates an innovative theory of 'capital as power and a new history of the 'capitalist mode of power'.

    Description: This paper documents the level and trends of monetary inequality in developing countries based on Povcalnet data up to the year 2015. On average, during the first half of the current decade, inequality declined in developing economies, although at a rate substantially lower than that experienced during the 2000s. The current average level of the Gini coefficient is above the value of the early 1980s, which shows the difficulties in moving towards societies with significantly lower levels of economic inequality.

    Description: There is a strong gap in school enrollment rates between young girls with and without children in Uruguay. This paper aims to explain if this gap responds to a cause-effect relationship, identifying the impact of becoming a teen mother on the educational outcomes of young girls. Our identification strategy takes advantage of a reform in Uruguay allowing voluntary termination of pregnancy since December 2012. This reform made Uruguay the only Latin-American country - except from Cuba, Guyana and Mexico City - where abortion on demand is legal. However, the supply of legal abortion services faced several drawbacks in some geographical areas where a high share of gynecologists refused to induce abortions, since the law protects the right to exercise 'conscientious objection' with respect to abortion. Thus, the supply of abortion services varied substantially across departments. Differences in the timing and degree of implementation provide a source of identification for estimating the causal effect of teenage fertility on education using an Instrumental Variables approach. Local abortion rates - carried out under the new legal framework - are used to instrument teenage fertility rates. This is the first study to have official information on the number of legally terminated pregnancies in Uruguay since abortion reform in 2012. Results suggest that access to legal abortion reduced teenage fertility. We provide an exogenous instrument for teenage fertility - legal abortion rates - and this is one of the main contributions of the paper. Second-stage results indicate the causal effect of teenage fertility on educational attainment is null for the group of compliers. This suggests that poor educational performance of teenage mothers cannot be attributed to early motherhood per se, but to pre-existing disadvantages.

    Description: El enfoque de las capacidades es un marco conceptual apropiado para identificar no la felicidad o satisfacción de las personas, sino más bien, lo que estas pueden o no ser o hacer. En consecuencia, el enfoque de las capacidades se centra en la libertad real de las personas y se aleja (sin excluir) de los medios que permiten la libertad (ingresos y recursos). Sobre la base de lo anterior, el presente documento se fija como objetivo proporcionar una aproximación al enfoque de las capacidades.
    Description: The capabilities approach is an appropriate conceptual framework to identify not the happiness or satisfaction of the people, but rather, what they may or may not be or do. Consequently, the capabilities approach focuses on the real freedom of people and moves away (without excluding) the means that allow freedom (income and resources). Based on the foregoing, this document sets as an objective to provide an approximation to the capabilities approach.

    Description: The aim of this paper is to identify the different shocks that could affect the current account in the argentine case, such as the terms of trade (the Harberger-Laursen-Metzler effect- HLM), supply shocks (productivity), demand shocks (real exchange rate and public consumption /current GDP) and the shocks on the production side of the economy. SVAR models with long-term restrictions and quar terly data covering the period 1994-2018 are used. The results of the impulse-response functions suggest the existence of the HLM effect for this country. Shocks in the terms of trade would initially affect to the current account positively, as the improvements in t he productivity and in the public saving (lower consumption).

    Description: This research shows the application and performance of three models for the classification of credit applicants: discriminant analysis, logistic regression and neural networks; techniques used by financial institutions for the calculation of credit scoring. The results show a better performance of the neural network model compared to logistic regression and discriminant analysis, achieving a success rate of 86.9\% in the classification. For the three models, fourteen variables were used to inform about applicant's socioeconomic characteristics and those of the credit operation. In the area of credit risk management, this result is relevant since it can be complemented by the calculation of default probability, the exposure at default and the recovery rate of the entity to establish the value of expected losses at both the individual level and the whole credit portfolio of the entity.

    Description: This study analyzes the impact of the use of Information and Communication Technologies (ICT) on the diversification strategy and performance of small and medium enterprises (SMEs). From a sample of 95 companies in the autonomous community of the Basque Country, it is evidenced that diversified companies show a higher level of use of ICT and this resource positively affects financial and non-financial company performance. The analysis also show that ICT is a mediating variable between the type of diversification and performance of business in which the company has entered. For the correlational descriptive and statistical analysis of the variables, IBM SPSS software was used (version 21). Further analysis which may expand upon this study could be to apply the model to different industries with the idea of comparing the results found and to define specific strategies.

    Description: Since Information and Communication Technologies adoption has grown, research on link of ICT and Economic Growth link has been rapidly developed, both in academic world and by governments and cooperation and development agencies. Research has found that there is a significant impact of the use of ICT on growth; however, it generally ignores the determinants of use. This is clearly visible in the case of studies carried out for the Mexican economy. This paper analyzes the determinants of differentiated use of ICT at subsector level in Mexico. using factor analysis, cluster analysis and econometrics, we find evidence related to the capacity (educational level and organizational maturity) that determines the use of ICT and, therefore, the strength of the impact of ICT on labor productivity in Mexico.

    Description: In this paper, we discuss the management of monetary policy of the Latin American central banks that have fully established inflation targeting. An optimal monetary rule is estimated for these economies using the Generalized Method of Moments. This analysis allows us to conclude that these central banks have taken into account the economic growth, in addition to price stability. However, only Chile has taken into account the evolution of the exchange rate. Furthermore, Chile, Brazil and Peru have followed an asymmetric behavior, while Colombia and Mexico have adopted a linear monetary policy rule.

    Description: In the present decade, in emerging economies such as those in Latin-America, mixed logistic models have been started applying to predict the financial failure of companies. However, there are limitations for the methodology linked to the feasibility of predicting the state of new companies that have not been part of the training sample which was used to estimate the model. In the literature, several methods have been proposed for predicting random effects in the mixed models such as, for example, the nearest neighbor. This method is applied in a second step, after estimating a model that explains the financial situation (in crisis or healthy) of companies by considering the behavior of its financial ratios. In this study, companies from Argentina, Chile and Peru were considered, estimating the random effects that were significant in the estimation of the mixed model. Thus, we conclude that the application of these methods allow for identifying companies with financial problems with a correct classification rate of over 80%, which becomes important in modeling and predicting this risk.

    Description: In this work, we propose an integer linear programming model for production scheduling of a group of finished products with independent demand. The model for the master production scheduling (MPS) is designed by considering production and inventory costs, as well as the productive process constraints regarding installations and production times. The aim of the proposed model is the minimization of the costs involved; specifically, undertime and overtime costs of resources, as well as the consideration of a minimum service level related to the deferred demand. The validation of the model considers data belonging to the demand of each product in a 12-week planning horizon and compares five scenarios in which some characteristics of the system and different service levels are modified. Finally, the results obtained for each one of the scenarios expose the improvement obtained by the proposed model with regard to the current procedure in the studied company.

    Description: The aim of this study was to determine the effects of the cooperative ``jigsaw'' method on generic competence-based training by university students. This specifically sought to understand how systemic, instrumental and interpersonal competences are more easily acquired by adopting ``jigsaw'' in the teaching-learning procedure. The results reveal that this cooperative learning method makes the development of systemic and instrumental competences easier to a greater extent than interpersonal ones. Meta-reflection or progressive rote learning achieved a highest score among systemic competences. Focusing our attention on the instrumental dimension, peer interaction, students' communication skills, participation, resolution of peer conflicts and direct instruction, these competences sty out from the rest. Finally, responsibility was the easiest competence in the interpersonal dimension.

    Description: This paper develops a continuous-time random model of loss index triggers for cat bonds on the basis of the loss amount incurred until their maturity. Assuming that total loss amount due to a catastrophe is defined as the sum of the incurred loss amount plus the incurred-but-not-yet reported loss amount, we model the decreasing linear dynamics of the latter amount by means of an additive Brownian process (or Ornstein Uhlenbeck process); and get the former by the difference between the total loss amount and the incurred-but-not-yet-reported loss amount. Finally, we test the validity of the model by estimating its core parameters and by contrasting the goodness of fit through a data series of six floods occurred in several Spanish cities prone to suffer such kind of catastrophes.

    Description: Using a quasi-experimental design with pooled cross section over time model, this paper explore the effect of the financial crisis known as the Great Recession on the labor supply in Ecuador. The remittances perceived declined due to the economic contraction in the United States and Spain, so the trade-off, between leisure and work, of the remittances perceivers might be affected. When household income decreases, labor supply increases that imply a reduction in leisure time in order to offset the decline of the income (substitution effect is larger than income effect). The model suggest that the probability of working additional hours for a individual who receives remittances rose approximately 5% with greater prevalence on men, single and persons with higher years of schooling.

    Description: The issue of gender violence has an important historic and social dimension. The social development of the last decades has allowed us to overcome the old male patriarchal order, but the woman continues to suffer a subordinate and submissive position towards the man in many situations of daily life, violence being a habitual expression of this relation of inferiority. Thus, public intervention becomes an essential support in the evaluation of this problem because it defines the political measures necessary to achieve a more egalitarian society that results in a higher level of well-being. The main objective of this work is to analyze the resources of the Spanish Public Administration in relation to gender violence as well as its effectiveness. The public measures analyzed show that, despite the great advances in the development of effective social policies, there is still a long way to go in the fight against gender violence.

    Description: In this research are analyzed, from the perspective of the diseconomies of agglomeration, the effects of environmental pollution in related diseases in the Metropolitan Zone of the Valley of Mexico (ZMVM). Spatial econometrics is used to verify the increasing effects of air pollution on the spatial distribution of deaths in the ZMVM in 2010. The results obtained allow to establish that there is a positive and significant spatial relationship of the pollutant emissions PM10, PM2.5, SO2, CO, NOx, COT and COV in the number of deaths in the ZMVM, especially in ischemic heart diseases. Also, the evidence obtained shows that in acute myocardial infarctions there is no direct relationship with air pollutants.

    Description: This article presents new estimations of the distance in international business between Colombia and 57 countries in Europe, America, Asia, Africa and Oceania. The concept of distance that we use transcends the institutional level and incorporates both institutional aspects and those that have not yet been considered in the literature such as labor market, business practice and innovation. In this way, we build a holistic distance index and discuss the results for the specific case of Colombia. Thus, from the construction of a synthetic index of distance, we calculated the distances between Colombia and the countries of the sample using the Mahalanobis distance in the dimensions analyzed here. Our results show that although there is progress in the globalization of international business between Colombia and the countries of the sample there are still restrictions faced by Colombian companies that are interested in entering these markets seeking to benefit from the free trade agreements.

    Description: This paper aims to contrast the spillover effects in business failure derived from the geographic proximity among firms of the same sector. To get this purpose, we develop an empirical application based on the analysis of the join-count statistics on a sample of firms of service sector located in the municipality of Murcia (Spain). Our results show significant spatial autocorrelation pattern, therefore, the probability of failure in a firm not only depends on its internal characteristics, but also on the situation of failure of its vicinity peer companies. These results can be an interesting starting point in the development of papers which consider the interdependence effects among closer peer companies in business failure literature.

    Description: In the nineties in the financial sector, there was an unprecedented process of mergers and acquisitions in Europe. This trend started in the United States in the eighties, quickly spreading to Europe. The study analyzes the variables that have a marginal effect on the probability by a financial institution to participate in a process of financial restructuring as a merged or nationalized entity. For this, categorical models with endogenous variable are used to represent the different situations of absorption being considered. In the modeling process we have used the usual econometric techniques for variable selection and their financial interpretability.

    Description: International Accounting Standard 40 (IAS 40 - Investment properties) offers an ideal setting for research on accounting choice as it represents a paradigmatic case choosing between the fair value and the historical cost as the measurement criteria. In this paper, we take the opportunity of this standard to provide additional evidence in a multinational and multi-context on the determinants that explain the accounting choice. Furthermore, in this paper, we introduce and compare the use of artificial neural networks and decision trees in order to assess the predictive capability of these methodologies, compared to other techniques commonly used to solve classification problems in this area such as the logistic regression. The classification results indicate that both neural networks and decision trees can be an interesting alternative to classical statistical methods such as the logistic regression. In particular, both methods outperformed the logistic regression in terms of predictive ability, although no significant differences were found between both.

    Description: This paper investigates the impact of external price shocks on private consumption and investment and the sources of fluctuations in these variables, in the case of Argentina, employing structural VEC models (Structural Vector Error Correction) and quarterly data, covering the period 1993Q1-2017Q1. To that end, short and long-terms restrictions are imposed and five structural shocks are identified: terms of trade, consumption, investment, real exchange rate and unemployment rates. The results show, that both consumption and investment, respond positively and permanently to the external price shocks and are influenced positively each other: investment has a positive effect on private consumption and total consumption impacts on investment positively. A real exchange rate depreciated would have a negative effect on private consumption and investment, in the short term.

    Description: The aim of this paper is to analyze and highlight the structure and functioning of shadow banks as institutions that played a key role in the 2008 financial crisis, which may contribute to identify financial risks in the future. The interrelated growth of shadow banks through their balance sheets is the process that is identified as a mechanism of financial feedback that is transformed into financial fragility and endogenous Minsky-type finance. Shadow banks are the channel of transmission of international financial fragility and not the securitization and the instruments that emerged from this process (CDO, synthetic CDO and CDS) as has been argued. Shadow banks trade and create market for these instruments at the international level, so that the origin and prevention of the international financial crisis can take a broader and better explanation.

    Description: We analyze the effects of macroeconomic fluctuations, as well as episodes of financial instability and inflation, on inequality indicators in Chile for the period 1960-2014. The relationship between episodes of crisis and fluctuations on levels of inequality are estimated from an event study, finding that they are related to fluctuations in inequality. In addition, we perform econometric estimates where inequality indicators relate to different macroeconomic variables and educational performance. The main conclusions are that banking and inflation crises, as well as periods of severe cyclical contractions, tend to increase the levels of inequality in Chile.

    Description: This paper develops a methodology using business intelligence (data warehouse) and OLAP tools (Online Analytical Processing) to match individuals from a household survey data to a census one. In order to geo-reference the household data, the method takes advantage of the geographical information of the census. Using the 2003 Household Survey and the 2002 Chilean Census of Population and Housing, the average household income is projected to intra-municipality levels and the results are compared to Elbers et al. (2003) methodology. The results show that the proposed methodology allows for taking into account and display the impact of intra-municipality heterogeneity and the spatial interaction among the spatial units.

    Description: Taking as a reference a simple oligopoly model with differentiated products, in which there are three firms, the purpose of this paper is to complement the existing literature on mergers by proving that the traditional merger paradox can be avoided by assuming that, after the merger, the merging firms increase the existing bilateral product differentiation. In this context, it is proved that a merger could be welfare enhancing by increasing both consumers surplus and merging and non merging firms profits.

    Description: El objetivo del presente trabajo es realizar un análisis comparativo entre la metodología comúnmente utilizada por los agentes del mercado local en lo referido a la estimación de Curvas de Rendimiento Cupón Cero (también conocidas como Estructuras Temporales de Tasa de Interés o ETTI), mediante la metodología de estimación de líneas de tendencias logarítmicas respecto a las YTM (Yield to Maturity) o TIR (Tasa Interna de Retorno) de un grupo o conjunto de títulos que comparten ciertas características y el desarrollo metodológico de Curvas de Rendimiento Cupón Cero mediante la implementación de un modelo paramétrico denominado Nelson y Siegel (NS)[1]. En los siguientes capítulos se abordarán ambas metodologías presentándose las ventajas y desventajas de cada una y sus ámbitos de aplicación. Para esto se tomarán los títulos públicos ajustados por CER a modo de ejemplo práctico dado que éstos presentan una estructura de cash flows compleja. El resultado del presente trabajo empírico arroja evidencias ampliamente favorables hacia la implementación del modelo paramétrico de NS. Esta conclusión se fundamenta tanto en las propiedades intrínsecas de la metodología de NS como en las desventajas de la utilización de YTM para extrapolar directamente una curva de rendimientos y, fundamentalmente, en los resultados obtenidos entre la diferencia (error) obtenida entre los precios estimados o teóricos por cada metodología y los precios de mercado.

    Description: El presente trabajo posee por objetivo analizar las decisiones de inversión adoptadas por las principales empresas participantes del mercado petrolero argentino en función de las políticas de derechos de exportación y precios internos del petróleo instrumentadas desde el año 2003, y cómo los flujos destinados a inversión pudieron haber afectado los niveles de producción de petróleo en la Argentina. Para ello se estudió la información proveniente de los estados contables correspondientes a treinta empresas participantes de la industria petrolera argentina, que en su conjunto representan más del 80% del tamaño de la industria petrolera local, en especial la referida a flujos de fondos destinados a inversión y variaciones en los activos fijos. Fue posible observar que la regulación de los precios internos mediante la instrumentación de derechos de exportación causó en forma simultánea un deterioro en la rentabilidad de las empresas pertenecientes a la industria petrolera. En forma simultánea, los derechos de exportación instrumentados entre los años 2004 y 2015 generaron una importante brecha de precios respecto de los valores internacionales del petróleo. La persistencia de dicha brecha de precios y de rentabilidad en el tiempo habría incidido en las decisiones de inversión realizadas en el segmento petrolero argentino, observándose una caída en los niveles de inversión y en los activos fijos productivos destinados a dicha actividad. Ello condujo a una reducción en la capacidad de producción de las empresas petroleras, lo cual generó para la Argentina la pérdida de la capacidad de autoabastecimiento de petróleo y combustibles.
    Description: The present paper analyzes the investment decisions made by the main companies participating in the Argentine oil market, based on the export taxes and domestic oil prices policies implemented since 2003, and how the cash flows destined for investment may have affected the oil production in Argentina. For this purpose, the financial statements corresponding to thirty participating companies of the Argentine oil industry (which together represent more than 80% of the size of the local oil industry) were studied, specially the information related to flows of funds destined to investment and changes in fixed assets. It was possible to observe that the regulation of domestic prices through the instrumentation of export taxes simultaneously caused a deterioration in the profitability of companies belonging to the oil industry. Simultaneously, the export taxes implemented between 2004 and 2015 generated a significant price gap with respect to international oil values. The persistence of this price and profitability gap over time would have affected the investment decisions made in the Argentine oil segment, with a drop on investment rates and fixed assets for that activity. This led to a reduction in the production capacity of the oil companies, which generated for Argentina the loss of the capacity of self-sufficiency of oil.

    Description: Un sistema de transporte público urbano eficiente contribuye con mejorar la calidad de vida de sus usuarios, a la vez que fomenta el crecimiento y desarrollo económico local. Es por eso que la Quinta Reunión de la Red de Transporte del Diálogo Regional de Política del Banco Interamericano de Desarrollo, llevada a cabo en octubre de 2015, tuvo como objetivo presentar y discutir las mejores prácticas internacionales sobre los modelos de fondeo y financiamiento disponibles para la construcción de infraestructura para servicios de transporte público urbano, así como para la dotación de equipamiento para su operación. Este documento se presenta como seguimiento de la Quinta Reunión de la Red de Transporte. Su objetivo es documentar las mejores practices internacionales en materia de fondeo y financiamiento para el transporte público urbano. Para lograr lo anterior, se muestra una primera distinción entre el fondeo y el financiamiento de la infraestructura y cómo se vincula este debate con estrategias fiscales que pueden llevar a un mayor impulso de los sistemas de transporte a nivel local. Posteriormente, se analizan algunas de las opciones de fondeo desde la óptica local y la importancia de los recursos propios como instrumento para detonar la inversión, así como los esquemas de apoyo a nivel nacional para favorecer el desarrollo de los sistemas de transporte urbano. El documento continúa con una discusión sobre el financiamiento privado de los proyectos, lo que incluye una comparación entre los mecanismos crediticios disponibles según sus características (la calificación de crédito aceptada, los costos del capital, la duración del crédito, las condiciones de los préstamos y los costos de transacción). Además, se aborda el tema de las Asociaciones Público Privadas (APP) como mecanismo para incrementar el financiamiento para el transporte urbano, incluyendo sus ventajas y riesgos. Más adelante, el documento presenta los instrumentos de financiamiento internacional, mediante los Bancos Multilaterales de Desarrollo (BMD), incluyendo las opciones para el financiamiento climático. También se muestran algunos mecanismos de recuperación de plusvalías que permiten incrementar el financiamiento para transporte urbano gracias al impacto positivo en los valores del suelo que trae consigo este tipo de proyectos. Por último, se discuten algunos de los factores que facilitan o inhiben la ejecución de proyectos de transporte público urbano, incluyendo las barreras que enfrentan los gobiernos locales y los mecanismos de coordinación necesarios para su mplementación. El documento concluye con una serie de recomendaciones que, partiendo de los diferentes elementos de las finanzas públicas (ingreso, gasto y deuda), así como de la importancia de la participación del sector privado para el desarrollo del sector, pretenden establecer orientaciones generales para el adecuado financiamiento de los sistemas de transporte público urbano en la región.

    Description: This paper discusses theoretical and practical issues related to long-term care (LTC) services in Latin America. Demand for these services will rise as the region undergoes a swift demographic transition from its currently young population to a rapidly aging one, especially since the region's aging cohorts are more prone to experience a decline in their functional and physical abilities than elderly people elsewhere in the world. We argue that private insurance markets are ill-equipped to provide coverage to meet the need for LTC, while the amount of personal savings required to afford self-insurance is prohibitively high. We study how developed economies have dealt with the issue of LTC and pay special attention to the most salient features of their LTC programs. We then direct the discussion to Latin America, where LTC may not be an immediate priority, but governments are likely to encourage the development of LTC programs as demand for them steadily grows. In particular, policymakers are probably going to focus initially on LTC programs for the poor and the vulnerable, for whom LTC affordability is a greater problem. We therefore study how basic elements of policy design affect costeffectiveness of LTC programs by means of a formal model. Our study shows that propoor programs are more cost effective when people have the option to receive cash subsidies, and the availability of in-kind and in-cash choices reduces program costs overall. We argue that our findings are natural starting points to start thinking about LTC program development in the region.

    Description: Migration has been a difficult phenomenon to measure because of its volatile characteristics and the number of models that explain the essential incentives of the process. In Bolivia there are few quantitative studies of international migratory movements, however, there are records that reflect a great socioeconomic impact by the migratory decisions. Throughout the document it describes that Bolivia has a negative migratory balance and that the profiles of the migrants have certain variable characteristics in the time. Generally, the search for accumulation of wealth, better living conditions, access to better education, better remuneration for productivity, among others, are sufficiently valid incentives to migrate to another developed country. The paper measures the impact of international migration on inequality of Bolivian wealth through the use of a dynamic general stochastic model DSGE with heterogeneous agents, specifying Argentina as the foreign economy because it is the country that holds most of the Bolivian people.

    Description: The achievement of gender equality in the labor market is not only a desirable goal by itself, but by its effects on growth and welfare. Based on such acknowledgement, this research quantifies the effects of gender gaps in employment, participation, occupational segregation and labor income, over monetary poverty in urban Bolivia. For this purpose, it is proposed to use the non-parametric microsimulation strategy in order to generate free gender gaps scenarios. Based on the comparison of poverty indicators observed and simulated with this strategy, it is evident that from 2006 to 2015 gender inequality in participation and labor income implied costs on the welfare of the society.

    Description: Propósito – La presente investigación examina la existencia de memoria de largo plazo por medio del cálculo del coeficiente de Hurst y Hurst ajustado, y del análisis de características de estructuras caóticas en la serie del mercado bursátil de Chile, específicamente a través del Índice de Precios Selectivo de Acciones. Diseño/metodología/enfoque – Se desarrolló un breve análisis del mercado, según la metodología de Box y Jenkings. La validez de los resultados se realizó por medio de la prueba propuesta por Brock, Dechert y Scheinkman. En segundo lugar, se procedió a analizar la dinámica y patrones del índice y de su rendimiento, para observar si existía evidencia de memoria de largo plazo. Hallazgos – Los resultados demuestran la presencia de esta memoria en el mercado bursátil chileno, determinado a través del índice accionario en dos escalas, diaria y trimestral, lo que además corrobora resultados obtenidos por otros autores, confirmando el uso de la metodología de Rango Re-escaldo para la identificación y determinación de memoria de largo plazo en una serie temporal. Originalidad/valor – Este estudio permitirá a futuros investigadores realizar análisis similares en otros mercados, aportando un nuevo enfoque al analizar la memoria de la largo plazo y los factores que inciden en ella.

    Description: Propósito – Los call centers generan estrés y ausentismo en el personal y la literatura sugiere que el liderazgo orientado a la gente es el tipo adecuado de supervisión para tal situación. Este estudio comparó sus efectos versus los de otros tipos de liderazgo. Metodología – Datos de ausentismo de 379 representantes de servicios al cliente de un call center peruano fueron analizados y los representantes respondieron a un cuestionario sobre el Marco de Valores en Competencia y sus cuatro tipos de liderazgo. Turnos diurnos y nocturnos de trabajo fueron comparados. Resultados – Se observó que el ausentismo declina con el liderazgo orientado a la gente, aunque solo en el turno diurno, y la adición de liderazgos orientados al cambio, los resultados y el control resta validez a los modelos. Limitaciones/implicancias – Futuros estudios deberán abarcar el desempeño del trabajador. Los hallazgos sugieren una necesidad de volver a poner el foco teórico en las contingencias ambientales que afectan la eficacia del liderazgo. Originalidad/valor – Teóricos del liderazgo se preguntarán en qué circunstancias es efectivo el liderazgo múltiple. Gerentes de call centers apreciarán el valor organizacional del liderazgo orientado a la gente en el primer nivel de supervisión.

    Description: En la actualidad, el mundo se ve afectado por la proliferación de guerras civiles en varias regiones. En algunos países como Colombia han firmado acuerdos de paz después de décadas de conflicto. En este contexto es pertinente investigar las formas como estos países reconstruyen sus economías y tejidos sociales luego de los conflictos. ¿Qué podemos aprender de las experiencias de los países a los que esto les ha ocurrido? En esta problemática, el tema del desarrollo y la reconciliación en áreas rurales es muy importante puesto que a menudo constituyen el principal escenario de las guerras civiles. Además, son sitios claves para el empleo productivo y la recuperación económica. Al mismo tiempo, las organizaciones e instituciones rurales, a nivel local, sean comunitarias, religiosas, cooperativas, gubernamentales u organismos no-gubernamentales (ONG), pueden jugar roles importantes en la reconstrucción. […]En Nicaragua, los productores y trabajadores rurales desarrollaron diferentes formas de acción colectiva para defender sus intereses. El resultado fue que el sector cooperativo jugó un papel fundamental en el proceso de reconciliación actuando como un freno parcial a la reestructuración neoliberal. El sector también contribuyó a la innovación social no sólo a través de estrategias de sobrevivencia, sino también como empoderamiento político y económico de sus miembros.

    Description: En el presente estudio sobre la movilización de recursos domésticos para el desarrollo social se analiza el sector de la salud en Nicaragua desde 1972 hasta 2015. Se examinan las variaciones en las políticas que afectan el sector salud y su financiamiento, el papel de las instituciones, la fuerza de las ideas nacionales e internacionales, y la influencia de la sociedad civil y del sector privado. Estos elementos se retoman para el análisis de diferentes periodos de gobierno: la dictadura de Somoza (1972–1979), una década de revolución (1979–1989), un período de políticas neoliberales (1990–2006), y finalmente una etapa de modelo híbrido que incorpora elementos de las dos etapas anteriores (2007–2015). El estudio examina los diferentes períodos y analiza con más detenimiento el período actual bajo el gobierno de Ortega. Los hallazgos son que a través del tiempo se observa una mejoría en la salud y en los servicios ofrecidos por el estado y el sector privado, y que ello en buena parte se debe a que el gasto social ha aumentado en la medida que la economía del país ha crecido y que las fuentes de financiamiento - con limitaciones presupuestarias por políticas macroeconómicas de control de déficit fiscal - se han diversificado. En cuanto al diseño de las políticas e instituciones de salud, en general ha prevalecido un modelo de salud curativo, aunque hubo períodos en que se enfatizó lo preventivo. Las razones por las que se obvia lo preventivo tienen que ver con el clima político-partidario en unos casos y el interés económico en otros casos. Entre los mayores desafíos en el sistema de salud en Nicaragua se encuentra la tarea de generar información fiable y democratizarla, lo que es más posible en el contexto actual de revolución tecnológica. Es la llave para poder optimizar la priorización de las inversiones, además de generar el mayor nivel posible de transparencia para poder maximizar la asignación de recursos propios y la obtención de recursos externos. De la misma manera la generación de información de calidad juega un papel esencial para mejorar la articulación entre diferentes sectores, y para una mayor participación de la población en el cuidado de su propia salud. Realizando esta tarea y los procesos relacionados a ella promete contribuir a la salud de la población y a que las instituciones sean cada vez más fuertes e inclusivas.

    Description: El presente documento analiza la movilización de recursos domésticos para el desarrollo social desde la perspectiva de los gobiernos municipales en Bolivia. Luego de dos décadas de descentralización y seis años de autonomías, las brechas sociales entre municipios siguen siendo profundas y se explican, en parte, por la debilidad de la gestión pública, falta de incentivos para obtener recursos propios y desarticulación de la gestión local en la provisión de servicios públicos. A pesar del aumento de excedentes de recursos naturales desde mediados de los años 2000 que propiciaron un incremento de las transferencias intergubernamentales, los gobiernos municipales aún no se consolidaron y todavía se observan deficiencias en el modelo fiscal-financiero para atender necesidades del desarrollo local.

    Description: This paper offers a review of the theory published on crowdsourcing tools from de point of view of the concept's adoption by researchers. Crowdsourcing is a concept that includes many of the online collaboration activities performed by crowds in response to an open call. The paper offers a perspective on the incremental amount of publications already available as an indicator of the level of such adoption, given that the adoption process in general takes time because there has to be a critical mass of ideas conformed by experts. This paper includes a review on the theoretical concepts related to crowdsourcing and technological adoption. Systematic search has been done and the obtained information is included. Finally some conclusions are delivered.

    Description: This paper looks for empirical evidence to show if a very interventionist government stimulates or not private investment in Latin America. Using the same model as Caballero-Urdiales y López-Gallardo (2012), we extend their analysis from five Latin-American countries to all Latin America. The results from our estimated elasticities show evidence in support of three hypothesis: (1) that tax burden (taxes on income and consumption) has significant effects on privateinvestment; (2) that public investment has a crowding out effect with private investment; (3) and that in order to stimulate private investment, the government should have very little intervention.
