Description

A study by former Colby Professor Guillermo Vuletin argues that Latin American countries have graduated in regard to policy responses to economic/financial crises in that they had been originally procyclical and later evolved to become countercyclical. The paper, in fact, divides its sample into a before-1998 group and an after-1998 group, placing the Mexican currency crisis in the procyclical response group and the Brazilian currency crisis in the countercyclical response group. This study is going to contrast the policy responses to these crises in each country and tie those responses into current performance.
