  • Reduction of the wage share of income and increasingly precarious employment 

    Velázquez Orihuela, Daniel (2021-08-31)
    The economic globalization that began in the late 1970s and early 1980s has generated job insecurity for workers. This coincides with two trends: a reduction in the wage share of income and increasingly precarious employment, both of which have been seen in most market economies since the early 1980s. This article proposes an efficiency-wage model ...
  • Rural employment trends in Brazil: an analysis using dynamic panel models 

    Paulo, Evânio Mascarenhas | Tabosa, Francisco José Silva | Khan, Ahmad Saeed | Rocha, Leonardo Andrade (2021-08-31)
    This article considers certain dimensions of the quality of employment in Brazil, particularly in rural zones. It starts from the perception of changes in rural production relations and the repercussions these have on employment practices. A panel data methodology is applied to capture the determinants of job quality, and a quality of employment ...
  • Okun’s law in Mexico: an analysis of heterogeneity among States, 2004–2018 

    Loría, Eduardo | Rojas, Susana | Martínez, Eduardo (2021-08-31)
    The sensitivity of unemployment to economic activity in the Mexican States (from the beginning of 2004 to the first half of 2018) was evaluated on the basis of Okun’s law (1983) as it relates to growth rates. To capture the heterogeneity of the 32 States, the results of individual regressions were compared with fixed effects panel data estimates. The ...
  • Foreign direct investment flows: an analysis for Argentina, Brazil, Chile and Mexico based on the Grubel-Lloyd index 

    Junior, Álvaro Alves de Moura | Vartanian, Pedro Raffy | Racy, Joaquim Carlos (2021-08-31)

The index was developed to further the study of a fundamental question in international political economy: how FDI affects economies, whether individual or regional, and becomes a general framework indicator of ...
  • The growth trajectories of Argentina, Brazil, Chile and Mexico: a comparative view through the framework space lens 

    Feijó, Carmem | Punzo, Lionello Franco | Tostes Lamonica, Marcos (2021-08-31)
    This paper discusses different growth trajectories in a selection of Latin American economies, namely Argentina, Brazil, Chile and Mexico, comparing the phase of import substitution growth strategies with the more recent period of financial integration into the world economy. Our working hypothesis is that different growth trajectories result from ...
  • The social discount rate in the evaluation of investment projects: an application for Ecuador 

    Castillo, José Gabriel | Zhangallimbay, Donald (2021-08-31)
    The standard social discount rate of 12% applied by planning institutions and multilateral agencies when evaluating public projects is a constant administrative parameter that is unsupported and unresponsive to changes in social preferences over time. This paper presents an alternative way of determining the social discount rate based on the gamma ...
  • The incidence of poverty in Costa Rica between 1987 and 2017: stagnation or reduction? 

    Fernández A., Andrés | Jiménez Rodríguez, Ronulfo (2021-08-31)
    According to official data (based on the income poverty line), 20% of households in Costa Rica were poor in 1994, a figure that has apparently not changed substantially since. The poverty level is currently considered to have stagnated at around 20% for more than two decades. However, the way poverty is measured has undergone methodological changes ...
  • Ethnicity and social exclusion in Colombia in 2012–2017 

    Ortiz Benavides, Edinson | Núñez Velásquez, José Javier (2021-08-31)
    This study aims to provide an approach to concepts and ways of measuring ethnicity and social exclusion that can be generalized to any context and time and, thus, make it possible to establish a statistically significant relation between these two categories. The methodology involves fuzzy sets and ordinary least squares regression, using data ...
