The World of Forking Paths: Latin America and the Caribbean Facing Global Economic Risks
In this report the Inter-American Development Bank (IDB) details the divergent paths that the world economy may take and their potential effects on Latin America and the Caribbean. Scenarios are constructed employing a modeling exercise that captures the trade, financial and other linkages between the region and the rest of the world. While vulnerabilities remain and external shocks have been and remain critical, the region enjoys many strengths and has developed a growing arsenal of policy tools. What is the balance of vulnerabilities versus strengths? How can countries address the existing vulnerabilities? How can they perfect their policy tools and minimize the effect of external crises?
On April 12, the IDB will host a Policy Seminar to present "The World of Forking Paths: Latin America and the Caribbean Facing Global Economic Risks"
