Javier Santiso at the conference

Are Latin American governments maximising the potential of fiscal policy as a development tool? Which reforms can help make the most out of fiscal policy to boost growth and combat poverty and inequality? Given that in the current context of global financial turmoil the relevance of fiscal management is more important than ever, this session at the World Economic Forum on Latin America explored and debated the main findings and recommendations in this year’s Latin American Economic Outlook (LEO 2009).
