Overview, Table of Contents & Sample Pages below


Latin America’s economy is set to contract for the second consecutive year in 2016, with limited upside potential in 2017. External headwinds, including depressed commodity prices, FX volatility, and uncertainty regarding demand prospects from Latin America’s main trading partners – China, the US and Europe – continue to constrain growth and are leading to higher inflation rates and deteriorating fiscal positions across the region.

In order to preserve macroeconomic stability, governments and central banks are expected to continue to implement preventive adjustment measures such as interest rate hikes and spending cuts, which will affect medium to long-term regional growth potential.
